‘Grand Piano’ reviews

“Breathtaking, dazzling, splendid. An utter joy of high concept, artfully composed and absolutely thrilling pure cinema.” – Sam Zimmerman, Fangoria

“A pulse-pounding experiment in terror.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Endlessly engaging. It’s probably the best Brian De Palma movie he never made.” – Todd Gilchrist, The Playlist

“Hugely entertaining! An acting and directing tour de force that holds the viewer in its vice-like grip from start to finish.” – Chris Tilly, IGN  More »

‘Jimmy P.’ reviews

“Marvelous. Poignant. Extraordinarily idiosyncratic.” – Amy Taubin, Film Comment

“Offers the most psychologically complex screen portrait of a Native American character in at least twenty years, probably more.” —Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com

“Del Toro and Amalric’s concentrated performances — the former resigned and shell-shocked, the latter agitated and servile — have an anguished grandeur.” —Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

“If you want to see one of the best performances of 2013 in a film almost no one saw (really, Oscar voters?), catch this gem at the Brattle Thea­tre.” —James Verniere, Boston Herald

“[Desplechin] is a precise and observant filmmaker.” —Ty Burr, The Boston Globe  More »
