Reviews: Adult Beginners (2015)

adult_beginnersReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 4/30/15] | Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: Adult Beginners’ isn’t terribly memorable, nor is it saying anything bracingly new. But it’s a very charming movie — and, for Kroll, a very smart play.
  • [New – 4/30/15] | Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
  • [New – 4/23/15] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: has the misfortune of being an awful lot like last year’s Sundance hit “The Skeleton Twins” without nearly as many laughs.
  • [New – 4/24/15] | Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Resolutely predictable and low-stakes but affable, “Adult Beginners” isn’t much. It’s more of a comfortable sit than a life-changing experience, but the actors makes it seem like a genuine effort.
  • [New – 5/1/15] | Dan Lybarger @ ArkansasOnline.com
    • Excerpt: Adult Beginners plays like a quieter, less vulgar version of a Judd Apatow movie. Unfortunately, the noise and the filth are essential ingredients.
  • [New – 5/1/15] | Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Another sadly toothless American independent comedy [that] just floats along on a current of bland affability.
  • [New – 4/24/15] | Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Some movies deserve to be treasured — and “Adult Beginners” is high on my list.

Reviews: A.K.A. Doc Pomus (2013)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 12/23/13] | Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • Excerpt: “A.K.A. Doc Pomus” gathers friends, collaborators, and, of course, the music to show just how big the talent and how much bigger the heart of an incredible artist.

Reviews: Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction (2013)

  • [New – 12/23/13] | Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • Excerpt: The artist and the art are inseparable. Stanton is a man content in the “nothing” he’s carved out for himself.

Reviews: The Selfish Giant (2013)

selfish_giantReviews for this film from our members:

  • Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row
    • Excerpt: The Selfish Giant is an assured and disciplined work, raw like a festering wound, and devastatingly blunt, establishing Barnard as one of the strongest voices in British independent cinema.
  • [New – 1/9/14] | Don Simpson @ Smells Like Screen Spirit
    • Excerpt: Barnard compliments her biting socio-economic commentary, with a visual juxtaposition of the tranquility of pre-industrial environments with the gritty aftermath of failed industrialization. Natural elements are portrayed with transcendent lyricism, while manmade creations are riddled with disarming malaise.
