Stories We Tell is a touchy, funny, and incredibly interesting film that was conceived with a praiseworthy courage and high accuracy by a talented filmmaker who has so much to give. Review

I must confess I didn’t like the ending but that didn’t prevent The World’s End from becoming one of the most intense and hilarious comedies of the year. Review

The score by Peter Von Poehl also does a great job in this aspect, aided by the simple but not less effective visuals, and an interesting cinematography. Review

Oprah and Oyelowo were never convincing, in opposition to Whitaker who played the butler with assurance and plainness. Review

The states of mind change a lot along the story; funny arguments, wild and raging violence, brooding despair, frustration, joy, and ultimately an outstanding finale, make Scenic Route a hell of a ride! Now imagine all that, ironically presented beyond the limits of insanity. Review

Temple’s great performance convinced me of her character’s madness but didn’t absolve Silva from an obtuse plot that didn’t even know what to do with its ending. Magic Magic is a totally expendable thriller that lacks nerve. Review

Every single character in this film can aspire to be super-something, but Kick-Ass 2 is assuredly miles and miles away from being a super-movie. No more sequels of this crap... please!! Review

Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard’s performances were positive but incapable to save this film from being an ordinary biopic. Review

The insipid and messy plot, presented very few believable aspects, and the movie loses itself in uninteresting shootings and tawdry situations. Review

The colors, soundtrack, and camera work, created a stifling background in tones of noir, filled with merciless violence and fulminant moves. Never bland or uninteresting, Elysium is not totally unexpected but guaranteed my attention from start to finish. Review

My advise here is: if you are an enthusiast of romantic films, go for it; otherwise don’t bother because “Drinking Buddies” is just another film that doesn’t stand out in any particular aspect. Review

Don’t be discouraged, since Museum Hours has so much to offer in an unpretentious way, that this trip to Vienna comes very much recommended. Review

Kenji Ushida's third feature film may bring him back the deserved international attention that he once had in 2005 with A Stranger Of Mine. Review

Lying or not lying, the result was always cruelty, and in the end, even I felt ready to confess anything in order to stop witnessing those distressing and fatiguing atrocities. Review

Nonetheless, these aspects didn't remove its effectiveness in denouncing the extreme nationalism in Turkey and the cynicism involved in one of the most barbarian genocides in the history of mankind. Review

If Smashed showed some signs of Ponsoldt’s cleverness and accuracy behind the cameras, The Spectacular Now stepped up one level, foreseeing a bright future for this young talented filmmaker. Review

Its beautiful ending, along with natural and convincing performances, helped In The Family to stand out as a humanist, realistic, and unaggressive tale about a good man that was forced to go against a family that he considered his own. Review
