QUOTES
Somersault - Abbie Cornish shines.
Keeping Up with the Steins - A sweet-hearted comedy.

A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints - Packs a visceral punch.!
Cocaine Cowboys - Exuberant, often hilarious, and such fun. Director Corben nails his history with vintage footage, death counts and headline busts. This vigorous, energetic doc captures the allure of a business that never thrived on subtlety.

Wordplay - Undeniably fun, bouncy and fast-paced! A genuine achievement!
I Like Killing Flies - An incredible portrait!

DAVID EDELSTEIN
(Slate / New York Magazine)
(2006 - 18 Quotes)

QUOTES
Our Brand Is Crisis - A knockout!
Brick - Brick takes off like a gunshot! It’s great to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this juicy role.
Look Both Ways - Deliriously inventive…enlarges your perception of the here-and-now—and what movies can do to transcend it.
Stolen - Haunting and expansive.
The Promise - A classic fairy tale with a hairpin psychological twist.
United 93 - Brilliant and momentous. With more fictionalized 9/11 films to come, is it too soon? My answer is that if they truly help us – as the brilliant, tightly focused, and momentous United 93 helps us – to fill in the gaps in our knowledge and to pose more incisive questions, then it is not soon enough.
The King - Even the Bible isn’t this perverse!
X-Men: The Last Stand - Fast and enjoyable!
The War Tapes - Extraordinary!...Maybe this picture be worth a thousand lives. See The War Tapes!
The Lake House - A really good time. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock have so much chemistry.
A Prairie Home Companion - Marvelous! Streep is just brilliant.
Half Nelson - A genuinely inspirational film! It’s the best kind of drama. Terrifically compelling!
Jesus Camp - Frightening, infuriating, yet profoundly compassionate.
Al Franken: God Spoke - Franken is a brilliant original!
The Departed - The movie works smashingly! Ingenious.
For Your Consideration - Shriekingly funny!
The History Boys - Brilliant and infectious…The History Boys is explosively alive.
Rocky Balboa - Rocky Balboa delivers…I was jumping out of my seat.

(Newsday)
(2006 - 10 Quotes)

QUOTES
Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story - ****!
Roving Mars - Exciting.
United 93 - **** Those who choose to see it will be deeply, honestly moved.
Wordplay - Delightful, fun and warmhearted! Could very well be this summer’s hit documentary!
Brothers of the Head - ***1/2! Ingenious!
The Illusionist - ***1/2 Sumptuous!
Snakes on a Plane - I had as good a time watching the movie as I did listening to the shrieking and hooting from the audience.
The Queen - **** Delightful and poignant.
Sweet Land - Deep, true jolts of humanity. The kind of humane, absorbing, subtly powerful film that we keep wishing for and never expect to see.
Flannel Pajamas - ****! As raw and biting as a December morning in Montauk, writer-director Jeff Lipsky’s depiction of modern metropolitan romance honors the sensibilities of both John Cassavetes and Ingmar Bergman.
