“looks and feels like no other indie feature I’ve seen… I find fascinating that the film’s free form media mixing and hallucinatory editing style…”
Matt Zoller Seitz- New York times

“perfectly captures the dementia in the context of a hallucinatory DePalma like thriller… just allowed myself to get lost in the abstract combination of sound and visuals”
Allan Richards-

“able to affect me on a deeper level… different than anything I’ve seen lately, and in this case that’s a good thing!”
Ron Bonk- Alternative Cinema

“Alexandre has a wacky twist and imagery that puts a spin on his effort… interesting, and added just the right amount of deranged highlights.”
Paul Zeis-

“Definitely check this one out if you’re into abstract cinema from the likes of Lynch, Jodorowsky, Buñuel or something along the lines of Elias Merhige’s Begotten.” Josh Samford- Rogue Cinema
