Theatrical one-sheet for I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, a Magnolia Pictures release. Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures.

QUOTES:

“A TRANSCENDENT DOCUMENTARY. A meditation on the prophetic brilliance and the very being of James Baldwin. In I Am Not Your Negro, he speaks to us, like a somberly eloquent ghost from the past, and what he says is: The thing we think of as the ‘American racial problem’ is not the American racial problem. It’s a crisis of the American spirit, with race as the excuse. It’s the disease that we must heal, or it will destroy us. To hear that message echo through I Am Not Your Negro is to feel uplifted in the special way that only James Baldwin could uplift you. It’s to feel cleansed, but warned. It’s to feel that the fire is here.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"One of the best movies you are likely to see this year." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“FIVE STARS. A cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made. A striking work of storytelling--I Am Not Your Negro isn’t a special interest title, it is a film.” – Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

“A THRILLING DOCUMENTARY. Brilliantly edited, I Am Not Your Negro moves across time and space, seamlessly — insistently — sliding from the historical civil rights movement to more recent events. Mr. Peck is a consummate filmmaker who deserves a larger American audience. He’ll get it when I Am Not Your Negro opens.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“AN EXCEPTIONAL DOCUMENTARY” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times

“A fascinating and gorgeous and very powerful film.” – Bob Mondello, NPR

“REMARKABLE. The film treats Baldwin as not only a great writer but an enormously current one, capable of issuing warnings across decades that have yet to be heeded. It’s thrilling to spend this much time simply being in the company of Baldwin's words.” – Linda Holmes, NPR

“An act of provocation, and of prophecy.” – Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice

“BRILLIANT. Jackson delivers a genuine performance that resurrects the clarity of Baldwin’s voice.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“IT SHOULD BE REQUIRED VIEWING FOR ALL AMERICANS.” – Piers Marchant, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

“Peck combines memoir, analytical polemic and behind them both the restless movement of an intellect fearlessly probing both itself and its situation in the world. I think that if the New York Film Festival had chosen its opening-night selection on artistic merit alone, the slot would have gone to the moral witness of I Am Not Your Negro.” – Stuart Klawans, The Nation

“VIVIDLY INTELLIGENT. A searing and topical indictment of racial prejudice and hatred in America.” – Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

“A stirring meditation about being black in America. Baldwin’s insights originate from 1979, but they still speak volumes. Jackson gives a sterling, understated performance.” – Tim Grierson, Screen

“One of this year’s finest documentaries.” – Michael Snydel, The Film Stage

“A HAUNTING, EXCEPTIONAL FILM. I Am Not Your Negro left me feeling utterly raw and stripped bare; a witness at last to authentic American history.” – Aramide A. Tinubu, Shadow and Act

“STAGGERING” – Jason Bailey, Flavorwire

"Bleakly funny…an absorbing and atmospheric entry in what we might as well term the “red snow” genre." - The Los Angeles Times

"The quiet dignity and soulfulness that radiates from Skarsgard’s craggily handsome features is echoed by the film’s majestic snowbound imagery (courtesy of the cinematographer Philip Øgaard) and its gorgeously keening guitar-based score." - The Los Angeles Times

"Brilliant. Brings a cool blast to summer’s end." - Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

"Possesses both a striking soulfulness and a sense of beauty." - Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

QUOTES:

“FOUR STARS. Herzog weaves a fantastical tale. For those looking for a ride through our modern technological world, or indeed a preview of what is to come, this is it. - Lanre Bakare, The Guardian

“A fascinating journey, loaded with insight.” - Josh Terry, Deseret News

"Humanizing in its portrayal of the internet’s pioneers, victims, fringes, and wonders.” – Charlie Warzel, Buzzfeed

QUOTES:

“This is a film that doesn’t shock you with cheap scares; rather, it claws into your subconscious and lingers there. A simmering nightmare of a movie.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

“One of the best movies we saw at Sundance. Picture the famous painting American Gothic. Now imagine that, just below the frame, a young woman is sawing the elderly couple's legs off, so that they'll never, ever leave her.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone

“A defiant announcement of a new talent. It contains some of the most memorable visual compositions in a very long time.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“SHOCKINGLY ORIGINAL. Francisca is a movie monster for the ages. Equal parts Ingmar Bergman, Tim Burton and Tobe Hooper. The discovery of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“AN EXQUISITE WAKING NIGHTMARE. An impressive, highly original horror fable.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“MASTERWORK. A stark, masterfully crafted horror movie. Truly jarring and intimate.” – Chris Alexander, Shock Till You Drop

“A SUPERBLY STYLIZED NIGHTMARE.” – Nicholas Bell, Ion Cinema

“A beautiful nightmare from start to finish.” – Justin Gerber, Consequence of Sound

QUOTES:

“A FEAST FOR ALL OF THE SENSES.” – Rolling Stone

“ONE OF THE YEAR’S SLIEST, SEXIEST THRILLERS. The first section is only part of the story. THE REST IS SO SUSPENSEFUL, SEXY, AND SURPRISING THAT IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO SAY ANY MORE. – Kevin P. Sullivan, Entertainment Weekly

“Director Park has conjured up not only his smartest but also his most stirring film to date. Unflaggingly cool and plush.” – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“RAVISHING. Director Park Chan-wook’s most delectable narrative feature in years.” – Justin Chang, LA Times

“Thrilling to follow and look at — an exactingly composed work, dripping in period style. This is a movie that features a great reveal--and then manages a short time later to make you view that reveal differently. And that's all in the first half.” – Steven Zeitchik, LA Times

“EQUALLY THRILLING TO FOLLOW AND LOOK AT. An exactingly composed work, constructed with the tightness of a Swiss Watch and dripping in period style, that still demands a lean-forward attention to plot.” – Steven Zeitchik, LA Times

“IT’S AWESOME. The movie feels like a beautifully shot, brilliantly paced page-turner of a novel brought to life. How often do we get to see an epic, lush, yet also pulpy, genre story that's so firmly on the side of its female characters?” Jada Yuan, New York Magazine

“AN INTELLIGENT, FUNNY EROTIC THRILLER, The Handmaiden seems destined for some kind of American remake that isn’t likely to live up to its invention, wit, and daring. See this one first, if you can.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

“AN INTELLIGENT, FUNNY EROTIC THRILLER.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

“All the best things about Asian cinema, rolled into one.”– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

“An amusingly kinky erotic thriller and love story that brims with delicious surprises, making its two-and-a-half hours fly by.” – Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

“DELIRIOUSLY FUN. Intensely pleasurable.” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

“HUGELY ENJOYABLE. Park has crafted such a marvelous playground that it’s easy to just embrace the atmospheric proceedings as the deviant scheming continues to thicken from multiple directions.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“Luridly mesmerizing.” – Maggie Lee, Variety

“LURIDLY MESMERIZING. One comes out feeling sensually satiated.”– Maggie Lee, Variety

“A twisted thriller full of graphic erotica and a noir atmosphere. Park Chan-wook manages to surprise us in almost every scene, every frame.” – Talia Soghomonian, Collider

“GORGEOUS” – Steve Pond, The Wrap

“THE SEXIEST FILM OF THE YEAR.” – Jen Yamato, The Daily Beast

“Seems like a lock for my top 10 of the year.” – Katie Rife, AV Club

QUOTES:

“GRIPPING. This real-life romantic thriller/escape saga is ESSENTIAL STRANGER-THAN-FICTION VIEWING.” – Justin Chang, Variety

“Perhaps the all-time strangest, most outlandish true-life story connected to the cinema. Wonderfully illustrated, alluring and informative.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

“A JAW-DROPPING TALE. Vibrant cinema.” – David D’Arcy, Screen

“Wild, valuable viewing. A truly insane tale of kidnapping, loves lost and found again, and a military dictator who sincerely imagined that he could become a great populist film producer.” – Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound

“A WONDERFUL SURPRISE. Part film noir, part black comedy, part romance.” – Chris O’Falt, Indiewire

“A HEAD-SHAKINGLY BIZARRE STORY THAT ALONE MAKES IT WORTH SEEING.” – Manohla Dargis, NY Times

“BRISK, FASCINATING AND ULTIMATELY MOVING.” – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
A BEYOND-BELIEF DOCUMENTARY.” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times

“MEMORABLE. If John le Carré had written a Hollywood satire, it might look like this.” – David Morgan, CBS News
