EGON SCHIELE: DEATH AND THE MAIDEN
"This film presents a fascinating biographical story as well as an interesting historical perspective on life in Austria and Vienna at the beginning of the twentieth century. The actors and actresses are refreshing young newcomers to film. "
- Pat Nevers, KinoCritics.com
"[T]he film EGON SCHIELE ? DEATH AND THE MAIDEN celebrates the exceptional artist with wonderful cinematography (Carsten Thiele gets to quite literally paint with light) under the direction of Dieter Berner. Every detail in the film is lovingly taken care of, every tiny role cast to perfection (for instance with Nina Proll as a Prater entertainer)."
- Elisabeth Schabus, Ristretto.tv
BYE BYE GERMANY
"The best German-language film Joe and Ethan Coen never made."
- Sherilyn Connelly, SF Weekly
"Peppered with Yiddish flavor and wit...."
- The Jewish Journal
"Charmingly made... a just-out-of-World War II Ocean's 11."
- Karen Han, The Village Voice
"In a class with Ozu's Tokyo Story...."
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"If the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel had been remade by Ingmar Bergman it might have turned out a bit like this...."
- Kevin Maher, The Times
"A moving, rewarding watch...."
- Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Gripping from start to finish.... A chilling, fast-moving study of a Syrian household under siege."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"A concisely-told story that couldn't be more timely... a superbly coordinated cast, largely composed of Syrian refugees - children and young adults included - gel magnificently. Hiam Abbass offers one of her most powerful performances to date...."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
"**** For a film that exists inside such a small setting, 'In Syria" is a big film.... It's remarkably powerful and a strong piece of work from director/writer Philippe Van Leeuw."
- Charliedavid Page, Switch (Australia)
"A discovery at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, IN BETWEEN hails from Israel, and is one of the best recent films to come out of that country, or anywhere for that matter."
- Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"[A] breezy, light-hearted dramedy of girl power..."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"[An] energetic feature debut...compelling...While the entire cast is aces, the three leads, and the chemistry among them, are especially fine..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety
"The loss of childhood innocence and the suffocating despair of adulthood come together in "Jasper Jones," a beautifully composed portrait of life in late-s small-town Australia. Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey?s novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences. Boasting excellent performances by young actors Aaron McGrath, Levi Miller (Pan) and Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), and with Toni Collette in top form as the protagonist?s frustrated mother, this is the best film yet by director Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae). "
- Richard Kuipers, Variety
"It?s compelling as a whodunnit, touching as a coming-of-age story, insightful as a picture of race relations and crafty as a drama about secrets, concealing a few of its own for a final, satisfying reveal."
- Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
"...one of the best and most heartfelt Australian films of the last decade."
- Richard Gray, The Reel Bits
"Milad Alami?s superb Danish thriller, ?The Charmer,? is a rebuke to the offensive stereotypes so often perpetuated by the American media. "
- Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
"...cleverly balances psychological thrills with astute drama."
- Mark Adams, Screen Daily
"Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"... persuasively acted, elegantly shot in black and white and altogether a handsome prestige period production..."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International
"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography. "
- Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"[An] intelligent and universally resonant crowd-pleaser..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety
"**** Hrebejk and Jarchovsy deftly employ humour as a way of mocking and undercutting their anti-heroine while preventing their overall point about power and corruption from becoming preachy. "
- Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Effectively transposing ൔ Angry Men" into the most intense PTA meeting of all time, Jan Hrebejk's "The Teacher" is a sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play..."
- David Ehrlich, Indiewire
BAD LUCKY GOAT
"An unexpected surprise, Bad Lucky Goat is lively and spry, funny and thoughtful. "
- Peter Martin, Screen Anarchy
"There?s a whiff of The Gods Must Be Crazy whimsy wafting through Bad Lucky Goat, an affably quirky debut feature by Bogota, Colombia-based Samir Oliveros."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter
"The playful narrative careens from a series of exotic locales, from rastafari drum makers to a climactic cock fight, with a blend of naturalistic dialogue and magic realism that?s both charming and unpredictable. The vivid backdrop creates an infectious atmosphere to this lighthearted romp, which stands toe-to-toe with Ozu in its depiction of angsty kids at odds with their surroundings. Yet Oliveros manages to use the rich environment to imbue the proceedings with an otherworldly quality that tips into fantasy and creates the sense that anything could happen. It?s a genuine crowdpleaser.... "
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"[M]asterful performances. [T]his tale approaches a family?s flawed construct with the critical seriousness of Robert Bresson or Fukada?s compatriot Nagisa Oshima."
- Maggie Lee, Variety
"[C]ommands attention from start to finish. The film?s insights into the isolation evident in the relationships most take for granted ? marriages, parent-child connections and long-term friendships ? don?t merely hit their targets; they smash them with a sledgehammer."
- Sarah Ward, Screen Dailly
"...deeply involving and uncannily affecting..."
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
