Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 03/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] geeky celebration of no-budget inventiveness....A lot of fun..."
Empire - 03/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "There's just enough whimsical good humour to carry BE KIND REWIND..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/29/2008
"[T]here's nothing not to like about the movie....Fitted with pockets of guest stardom, including Mia Farrow...and GHOSTBUSTERS' own Sigourney Weaver..."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"[C]inematic to the bone: it's an affectionate, illuminating paean to filmmaking, a DAY FOR NIGHT for the retro-chic set."
USA Today - 02/23/2008
"BE KIND pays homage to the idea of film as a collective art....Good natured and sometimes endearingly loopy..."
New York Times - 02/22/2008
"[The characters] provide a welcome a welcome reminder that even the slickest blockbuster is also a piece of handicraft, an artifact of somebody's nutty, unbounded ingenuity and the potential object of somebody else's innocent, childlike fascination."
Rolling Stone - 03/01/2008
"Def is likably low-key....Gondry and the gifted indie cinematographer Ellen Kuras have fun with the amateur versions of the likes of ROBOCOP, RUSH HOUR, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, KING KONG and DRIVING MISS DAISY."
