    Quiet, finely etched and beautifully acted by Dina Korzun and the wise-beyond-his-years Artiom Strelnikov. show more

    Michael Atkinson Mr. Showbiz

    Maddin's movie is, frame for frame, the densest and most spectacular (albeit cardboard-cheap) film playing anywhere. show more

    Thanks to the wonderful performances from both Korzun and Considine, there isn't a forced or dishonest moment on-screen. show more

    A film that celebrates simple human kindness. If the ending feels somewhat unsatisfying, it is perhaps because one hates to see this too-brief film end at all. show more

    I like the way Last Resort ends, how it concludes its emotional journey without pretending the underlying story is over. You walk out of the theater curiously touched. show more

    Sweet, melancholy comedy; it's ineffable charm lies entirely in the delivery. show more

    Best series premiere I\'ve ever seen. Fabulous acting and writing. Beautifully shot. Looks like a feature film. Hope this one goes. Am worried about the time slot at 7:00. Feel like this one should be on later. Please keep this one on the air! Can\'t wait until next week.
