BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 08/26/2016


Jane Levy stars in Screen Gems' horror-thriller DON'T BREATHE.DON’T BREATHE

“It keeps you guessing throughout the running time, and has fun playing with the audience’s expectations.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Film Thrills

“DON’T BREATHE should be commended for being a film that tries its hardest to be different during a time when familiarity is all too common.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“A seemingly limited premise is rendered utterly riveting and tense as hell. ” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“Less is more, because each item on your plate is divine to the palate, assuming that uncontrollably squirming in your seat is to your taste.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“…an adrenaline rush of a film, a taut 88-minute thrill ride.” - Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…Portman makes bold visual choices and sticks to a personal, at times trying, aesthetic strategy. She’s a real filmmaker.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“This is a deceptively complex and layered film, calm and dense and fraught with unease.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

 

mechanicresurrectionMECHANIC: RESURRECTION 

“There’s little to separate MECHANIC: RESURRECTION from a dozen other Jason Statham action movies, other than the obvious lack of effort from all involved to even try and do anything different.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide
