Reviews for ‘King of Hearts’

“A funny and touching experience.” – New York Times

“A surrealistic jewel of a comedy which you realize, when you can catch your breath between laughs, has made the case for the sanity of the lunatics and the madness of the war-waging sane.” – Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times

“De Broca delivers potent satire in a manner both skilful and charming.” – Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film

Reviews for ‘The Endless’

“A demanding, rewarding picture with moments of unusual terror and awe, offering a science fiction/horror scenario on a literally cosmic scale.” – Kim Newman, Screen International

“With every film they make, Moorhead and Benson refine their genre-bending, unapologetically cerebral style, and The Endless is no exception.” – Katie Rife, The A.V. Club

“If you have a good idea, a strong cast, a smart script, and directorial chops, you don’t need a lot of money to make a compelling movie. The Endless is proof.” – Matt Zoller Seitz,

“‘The Endless’ is unnerving in ways that elude easy explanation and that slip under your skin and stay there.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“A mystery wrapped in a conundrum.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald
