HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • A-
    Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker co-star in 'Spring,' a monster movie that takes a smart, honest look at the difficulties inherent to intimacy in a new relationship.
  • A
    'The Tribe' has been a major hit at every film festival it's played this year, and with good reason. It's a bold and striking story of love and violence, told entirely through sign language, and while it should be a hard sell for distributor Drafthouse Films, it's a worthwhile difficulty.
