  • [New – 8/28/15] | Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
  • [New – 8/23/15] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: this dual character study, featuring a balls out performance from Moss and an eerie one from Waterston feels like so many other movies, everything from “3 Women” to “Your Sister’s Sister” to “Rosemary’s Baby” and “Repulsion,” yet defies coming into its own focus.
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
    • Excerpt: This is a difficult and finely sustained work of psychological observation, diving into miserable depths of pity, ego, and insecurity with a shifty but unblinking thriller’s eye for dread.
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Daniel Lackey @ Cinema Axis
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Kristen Lopez @ Awards Circuit
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Aaron Pinkston @ Battleship Prentension
    • Excerpt: After the breakout success of Listen of Philip, I’ve seen some consider Queen of Earth to be a minor entry in Alex Ross Perry’s burgeoning career. Sure, the film is small in scope, but it is complex and satisfying on multiple levels.

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Thriller de sobremesa a mayor gloria de Taylor Lautner, que pasa de hombre lobo a hombre mono a las órdenes del español Daniel Benmayor. El trabajo del cineasta a nivel técnico es lo mejor/único destacable de una propuesta fugaz, muy fugaz.
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: Let’s just say there’s barely a trace of an interesting plot to be found.
  • [New – 8/28/15] | Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: …a vanity vehicle for the ex-Twilight Lothario. The best sell in ‘Tracers’ is indeed Lautner’s kinetic physicality for athletically bouncing around in a synthetic, boneless urban suspense piece.
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Another terrible film with Taylor Lautner…
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: É um digno produto para o grande ecrã. Faltou algo mais sólido no argumento para que também no mercado doméstico conseguisse longevidade.
  • George Zervopoulos @ www.moviesltd.gr [Greek]

Reviews: Mistress America (2015)

  • Chris Barsanti @ Film Journal
    • Excerpt: Noah Baumbach’s second generational comedy of the year after ‘While We’re Young’ aims for Greta Gerwig screwball retro fizz instead of Ben Stiller anxiousness and nearly succeeds.
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: Along with the soaring Frances Ha, Mistress America is evidence that Gerwig the actor is at her best when interpreting the words of Gerwig the screenwriter. She plays Brooke to perfection, making her delusions of having been wronged or of opening a restaurant pitiably transparent while always keeping her charismatic and magnetic enough to buy that Tracy would be in her thrall.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …the film’s abrupt switch from character-driven comedy into a slamming door farce feels like these players suddenly decided to put on a play, adding cast all trying to hit their marks while layering their lines over each other.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: The heart of this thing is absent.
  • [New – 8/28/15] | James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Mistress America’ is Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s latest collaboration, which achieves exceptional levels of witty discourse and complex relationships.
  • [New – 8/28/15] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: On several occasions I was compelled to simply shake this woman free from her all-encompassing fog of self-interest. It’s inexhaustible.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A mashup of Baumbach’s usual bohemian caprice, a John Hughes-ish lark, and old-fashioned screwball comedy, all rapid-fire wit and snark and aching wisdom.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Combine Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig and magic happens. A flighty self-obsessed 30 year-old mentors maudlin college freshman.
  • [New – 8/27/15] | Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: Once the viewer adjusts to the film’s particular tone, it become apparent that the sharp-eyed Baumbach can imbue even broad character comedy with his distinct brand of cutting, tossed-off wit.

  • [New – 7/9/15] | Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: Robin Williams, in his last performance, as a closeted gay man who discovers that it is time to reveal his secret self.
  • [New – 7/16/15] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Here it is, the late Robin Williams’ last onscreen appearance to be released, and it is difficult to ignore the face of a man who appears to just want to end it all…This is the type of Indie film that mistakes relentless misery for high art.
  • [New – 8/23/15] | Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: In Robin Williams’ last dramatic role, he portrays a closeted gay man who imprudently pursues a relationship with a younger prostitute in ‘Boulevard.’
  • [New – 7/17/15] | Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Robin Williams gives a knockout performance in his final dramatic film. A fascinating, if at times run-of-the-mill, character study of a man ready to breath free.
  • [New – 7/17/15] | Brent McKnight @ Cinema Blend
