Reviews for ‘Desert Hearts’

Desert-Hearts_poster_r_original small“The romance remains a cultural and sociological icon… as sizzling as ever.” – Lydia Marcus, The Advocate

“Deitch takes lesbian cinema back to its future.” – Armond White, Out Magazine

“Reads between the lines of desire and self-assessment to locate the liminal place where the notion of personal identity begins and ends.” – Clayton Dillard, Slant

“If you found the movie ‘Carol’ to be lacking in emotion and natural warmth, you will enjoy this luminous, heartwarming love story with a Western backdrop and touch of Patsy Cline.” – Merryn Johns, Curve

Reviews for ‘Baby Driver’

baby-driver-poster-2UPDATE: By popular demand, BABY DRIVER will be held over for two additional screenings – Sunday 10/15 at 7:30 & 10pm!

★★★★ “One of the most entertaining thrill rides of this year, this decade.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“Edgar Wright’s start to finish sensation is blessed with killer car chases, a star-making turn from Ansel Elgort, the year’s best soundtrack and the most fun you’ll have at the movies all summer.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The first thriller I’ve seen in a long time that feels handmade.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture

“‘Baby Driver’ somehow maintains a tone of sweetness even as bullets fly, blood spurts, and gears are stripped. In fact, the movie feels like Tarantino minus the sleaze.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
