  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Galveston

    "Galveston" affirms what most of us already (should) know and that's Ben Foster and Elle Fanning can carry a film comprised of dead-weight and missed opportunities on their own — put them together and they can *almost* make you think this is a great film. Simply put this ain't "Hell or High Water." A murky retread of "Leaving Las Vegas," aside from an interesting last chunk, another wholly forgettable L for neo-noir.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Galveston

    Malgré une solide prestation de l'acteur Ben Foster (et une plus mitigée composition de sa partenaire Elle Fanning, en mijaurée pleureuse et translucide) cette première œuvre américaine de la boulimique Mélanie Laurent, transpire trop l'application et la pondération d'un travail bien fait, qu'une véritable création cinématographique libérée des contraintes et des freins inhérents à la production...www.cinefiches.com
