This is the kind of film that makes you feel intensely alive while you're watching it. - Roger Ebert

Red is not a movie by a filmmaker who has run out of ideas, but one by an artist at the height of his powers.
- Hal Hinson, Washington Post

Undaunted by the tremendous emotional and moral valence he has by now invited us to expect, Kieslowski controls the film magnificently, putting to use the shapely formal precision he took an entire career to work out. - Jonathan Kiefer,

4 Stars - Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he's the real thing, a director of quixotic delights. - Roger Ebert

Judge has a gift for delivering brutal satire in the trappings of low comedy and for making heroes out of ordinary people whose humanity makes them suspect in a world where every inch of space, including mental, is mediated. - Carina Chocano, LA Times
