Five star review prominently featured on The Guardian

EDIT: That's actually their Sundance review recycled from January
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

That New Yorker review was a good one to wake up to. So was the Salon piece. 78% on Rotten Tomatos - not too shabby thus far!

A bunch of the negative reviews are good too. Slant, Reverse Shot...I don't like 'em but their points are valid and well made and are the type of negative review that would make me still want to see the movie.

I feel like the Slant review really misread Ruth's character. Like, to the extent that it makes me think they weren't really paying attention to the movie.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Really rave reviews just now on KPCC (NPR station in LA).  Guy said you've got "the best debut film [he's] seen in probably 15 years!"


Excited to see this at some point this week.

I agree, and it was really surprising to me - but I was interested in the very fact that they were able to read her in that way. It made me think about the movie in a new way.

Whoa! That is awesome.

ST NICK was a minor enough blip on the cinematic landscape that I don't blame anyone for not knowing about it. I can't wait for it to get some sort of release in the near future though. It holds up.

i'd be going to see this anyway, because of course i don't want to punch my computer, but beyond that and beyond what i've read and beyond etc, st nick. st nick holds the fuck up, for sure. imo there's nothing minor, there's something great. not at all some kind of movie you'd have to deny for the rest of your life, no way

In Ain't Them Bodies Saints, the Sundance award-winner that opens in theaters today, Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara play two outlaws whose 1970s crime spree ends with him in jail and her pregnant with their child. Years later, he escapes, intent on reuniting with his family, but not altogether aware of what dangers await him at home. For most of the film, the two lovers are apart, but their scenes together proved so fun and rewarding that writer/director David Lowery wrote what he hoped would be a follow-up short film, a prequel of sorts that captures their Bonnie and Clyde days. ''Casey and Rooney and I talked about it on the set, that we wanted to prolong that experience,'' says Lowery. ''But it never worked out because everyone's schedules are so complex.'' Instead, IFC Films suggested a comic book, and put him in touch with Criterion Collection artist Eric Skillman. Together with comic-book artist Matthew Southworth, they made New Tattoo, a compelling prelude to the events that occur in the film. ''I really loved these characters and I loved getting to spend a little more time with them on the page,'' says Lowery. —Jeff Labrecque

You can hear the review I was talking about starting around the 16:50 mark here: http://www.scpr.org/programs/filmweek/2013/08/16/33285/filmweek-08-16-13-lee-daniels-the-butler-kick-ass/

They start saying really nice things about Ghostboy (though they insist on using his real name) around 18:40.

congrats again!
