Reviews for ‘Contemporary Color’

contemporary-color-poster-1“Intimate and otherworldly.” – Nick Newman, The Film Stage

“Bursting with joy, and it’s impossible not to get swept up in it.” – Jason Bailey, Flavorwire

“Back home, these kids might be considered betas by small-town jocks and snooty froshes. Contemporary Color turns them into next-gen Bowies.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone

“A brilliant show. A series of mesmerizing spectacles brought to life.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“‘Contemporary Color’ is a gift to audiences everywhere, a spectacular kinetic pinwheel of a movie that whisks us away from big issues to celebrate an exceptional creative collaboration.” – Peter DeBruge, Variety

Reviews for ‘The Lure’

the-lure-poster-1“A genre-defying film that blends elements of musicals, horror, romance, and fantasy into a contemporary fairy tale that celebrates the animalistic, the feminine, and the intimate intersections between the two.” – Katie Rife, AV Club

“Holding it all together is an exploration – always intriguing if not always coherent – of the myths and puzzles of female sexuality.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times

“If you’re only going to see one sexed-up, cannibal-mermaid disco musical this year, make sure it’s ‘The Lure.'” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“Unsettling and oneiric, The Lure is a film of black humor, grungy debauchery, and ravishingly surreal eroticism done with an idiom that blends high camp with unexpected pathos.” – Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
