57% The Hummingbird Project (2019) The film has a great story and some fine people telling it. Too bad, then, that more consideration wasn't given to how end it. Rather than concluding with up or down, or success or failure, it just sort of peters out. - TheFilmJournal.com (Ohio) EDIT

B+ 91% Locke (2014) You'd think that the one actor-many voices thing would come across as a gimmick, and it sort of does for the first 10 minutes or so. But because this is written and crafted so well, you soon forget about that. - The Patriot Ledger EDIT

83% Aftermath (Poklosie) (2013) Despite an unnecessary and rather gruesome plot turn near the end, Aftermath remains a terrifically acted and well-told story that will open a lot of eyes in its portrayal of despicable human behavior. - The Patriot Ledger EDIT
