The Oak Room

Anyone who enjoys locked room stories with ambiguous characters will find The Oak Room is right up their alley.

Ricky Church, Flickering Myth


Not a lot happens, and when it does, it's nothing we haven't seen before and done with more terror, fire, sexuality and suspense.

Roger Moore, Movie Nation


Nicely animated, though the plot is messy. The back story, with lonely tween Shaggy meeting up with the then-unnamed Scooby, is actually rather moving.

Sarah Cartland, Caution Spoilers


The Lady Eve

Released in March 1941, 'The Lady Eve' was a beautiful distraction then, and it's a beautiful distraction now. And Criterion's 4K restoration positively sparkles.

Michael J. Casey, Boulder Weekly

Marriage Story

A solid union between sparkling A/V quality and a thoughtful, if not particularly diverse, assortment of extras, Criterion's release of Marriage Story is built to last.

Derek Smith, Slant Magazine

Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills

The film can afford to spread its comedy around with greater generosity than the more tightly focused Not for Publication, and it hits its targets with greater frequency as well.

Budd Wilkins, Slant Magazine
