Film Reviews and Press

The ARTery: “The Brattle Celebrates The Singular Lens Of Cinematographer Robby Müller”

Cambridge Day: “Bergman birthday brings a gift of screenings, night in cemetery and Liv Ullman appearance”

“Bergman is easily one of the 10 or 20 most influential filmmakers of all time. The centennial program is a glorious gift to cinephiles, and a boon to budding film freaks just catching the Bergman bug.” – Tom Meek, Cambridge Day

Film Notes: “Scene Analysis | Females Are Food, Too: The Objectification of the Human Form in ‘Alien'”

Film Notes: “Childhood in Black and White: Marjane Satrapi’s ‘Persepolis'”

Reviews for ‘The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl’

“A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision – wherever it leads.” – Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times

“Colorful, madcap, and surprisingly sweet, The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl is the best nocturnal romp you never had, and a dizzying reignition of rom-com formula.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“The term ‘fever dream’ is often used to describe animation like Yuasa’s, but it’s rarely so apt as it is here.” – Christopher Campbell, Film School Rejects

Reviews for ‘Good Manners’

“WONDROUSLY WEIRD! Swerving from predictable to confounding, dreamy to demented, artful to awkward, this genre-twisting hybrid from Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra links art house and slaughterhouse with unexpected success.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“A COLORFUL, SINGULAR modern fairy tale… Guillermo del Toro meets Jacques Demy.” – Serena Donadoni, Village Voice
