Wild Rose

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Director Tom Harper catches lightning in a bottle with his decision to cast Buckley, who appeared in his 2016 BBC production of ‘War & Peace,’ the young Irish actress running up and down emotional scales while crooning country classics.

Wild Rose

Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum

  • Excerpt: Takes the “Star Is Born” formula we’ve seen before, and gives it a level of grit and raw emotional heft that allows it to soar, especially with Jessie Buckley’s terrific performance.

Wild Rose

Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

  • Excerpt: Rose-Lynn is engaged in a tug-of-war between the life she’s always wanted and that which she regrets creating. Choosing one above the other will only guarantee more heartache.

Always Be My Maybe

Courtney Howard @ Variety

  • Excerpt: The positive influence of When Harry Met Sally is noticeable in the undercurrents, but this romantic comedy has its own unique identity.

Belzebuth

Scott Phillips @ The Movie Isle

Daughter of the Wolf

Courtney Howard @ Variety

  • Excerpt: The filmmakers adeptly blur the lines between the heroes and anti-heroes, constructing a dynamic, character-driven portrait of rage and redemption

Dead End

Scott Phillips @ The Movie Isle

Hagazussa

Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

  • Excerpt: Blood [chapter three] is conversely magnificent enough to render the whole worth checking out alone.

Andrew Wyatt @ The Lens

Teen Spirit

Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]

Yesterday

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: While Yesterday is quite enjoyable, I couldn’t help but shake the feeling that much more could have been done with such a rich idea to help it come together better.

2018 Films

Mangoshake

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: … a nearly plotless experiment evoking a certain summer slacker ennui through comic vignettes that err towards the goofy side of absurd. It’s sort of a sunny combination of ‘Clerks’ and Korine that sets out to subvert teen cliches.

2017 Films
