“A worthy tribute to a monumental talent. Riley cuts it all together impressionistically, at his best when using edits to suggest how much the actor’s father informed brutish Stanley Kowalski. If sometimes the loose-limbed film threatens to drift into incoherence, that’s also quite fitting for a story told by Marlon Brando.” – Movie Mezzanine, 07/31/2015

“There was no subject nor any genre that he couldn’t somehow turn into a Robert Altman movie. Other filmmakers tell stories, Altman created ecosystems. He built minutely detailed worlds, mostly governed by sadness and systemic corruption, and then sent his iconoclastic heroes ping-ponging off the walls of their limitations, often failing spectacularly” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/30/2015

“There’s a vitality and a breadth of vision that made most of the other movies I saw at Sundance this year look anemic, a feeling of community that sent my spirit soaring. Like nothing else you’ll see at the movies this summer, Tangerine is a lewd, madcap romp tempered with unexpected moments of sweetness and grace.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/16/2015

“Dreary and determinedly unpleasant, Strangerland is one of those stories that gets smaller as it goes along, portentously building up to no-big-deal reveals before collapsing into an incomprehensible muddle. I’m still trying to guess what it was supposed to be about. Bad art movies can be such a chore sometimes.” – Movie Mezzanine, 07/08/2015

“A pointless but not unentertaining diversion, Terminator Genisys exists for the same reason a dog licks his balls: because it can. The rights became available and lord knows Arnold could use a hit now that his post-gubernatorial comeback petered out. It’s not a bad night out at the movies, for the most part playful and accepting of its own absurdity.” – Movie Mezzanine, 07/01/2015
