EASTERN PROMISES

Review by A. O. Scott[/url], New York Times.

BLAME IT ON FIDEL
Directed by Julie Gavras in Limited Release. Playing at the Laemmle's Royal in West LA.

"A remarkably assured and elegant debut, "Blame It on Fidel" is the kind of smart, sophisticated and fiercely humanistic film that all movies should aspire to be, but seldom do."

Review by Carina Chocana, Los Angeles Times.

SHADOW COMPANY
Directed by Nick Bicanic & Jason Bourque In Limited Release (NY & LA).

"A lesson in how to get audiences who know little and care even less about the Iraq War to sit up and pay attention. Mixing explosive frontline footage, videogame scenes and clips from "The A-Team" with talking heads, pic presents an energetic look at the controversial subject of private military companies -- modern-day "mercenaries" (a loaded word the docu spends considerable time exploring) that fight for financial gain rather than political ideology."

Review by Peter Debruge, Variety.
