Movie Reviews

“A strong first act and an appealing Depp performance mask a myriad of flaws (…) Rating: ??? (out of 5)” Kim Newman: Empire

“Opens with a spectacularly good title sequence and goes downhill from there (…) Depp and Polanski bring a film noir feel to the film (…) Rating: ?? (out of 4)” Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com
