"From full out comedy to the more whimsical portrayal of the unpredictable, Coscarelli and company manage to keep the film from slipping into a landslide of the nonsensical and into a fun, unpredictable, and somehow still cohesive adventure into the metaphysical." -- Eric Havens, Downright Creepy
"At the center of Nick Love's improbable and increasingly illogical British police thriller and all-around shoot-'em-up, 'The Sweeney,' lies a role an actor might kill for." -- Kirk Honeycutt, Honeycutt's Hollywood
"Ranging somewhere between a Southern-fried indie and an outright midnight movie, Battles goes for defiantly violent laughs and gets almost as many as 'Django Unchained' in about half the time." -- Joe Bendel, Libertas Film Magazine
Not too many reviews in the database for this week's releases, but don't worry if you can't find anything, as this weekend's theatrical releases look quite promising.
"Pablo Trapero's 'White Elephant' is a smartly acted, beautifully scored, often bracingly directed film of good intentions and big ambition. Yet it can only be called a modest success, and, in light of how strong some of its individual elements are, even a slight disappointment... Trapero stopped at second following a base hit that should have led to an easy triple." -- Christopher Schobert, The Playlist
