THE CRYING GAME

'The most intriguing film Neil Jordan has made since Angel, his first, and Mona Lisa, his most popular.' Derek Malcolm, Guardian

'Dynamic, surprising . . . This is that genuine rarity: a bold British film, bound to get people talking.' Geoff Brown, Times

'No recent film has boasted more intriguing themes and Jordan sets up his story with skill.' Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

BOOMERANG

'The few moments when the old impish (Eddie) Murphy surfaces only emphasise how lazy a performer he has become.' Geoff Brown, Times

'If Boomerang isn't exactly a return to form, it's the best thing (Murphy's) done since Beverly Hills Cop II.' Toby Young, Guardian

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

'An expert ensemble piece . . . hair- raising and horribly funny.' Hugo Davenport, Daily Telegraph

'The film could hardly be better cast, and the carefully rehearsed ensemble work is a model of its kind.' Derek Malcolm, Guardian
