“One of the best Indie Movies of 2012 so far, according to Criticwire.” Criticwire, Indiewire

“JOURNEY TO PLANET X is certainly not the first film to document the quixotic ambitions of filmmakers whose visions far exceed their skills. But it does so with a refreshing empathy for its   subjects, two men motivated by sheer love of make-believe....JOURNEY [TO PLANET X] is a well put-together crowd pleaser. John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

Selected quotes from reviews of WE ARE WIZARDS:

“An amazing, touching, and hilarious look at the world of Harry Potter fandom. One of the 10 best films of the year!” Laremy Legel,

“Heartfelt and hugely entertaining!” Aaron Hillis, IFC News

“A highly enjoyable illustration of how, even in the limited universe of pop culture, people create, refract and remix their own stories.” Andrew O’Hehir,

“A film with considerable charm that depicts its characters with affection and integrity.” Nick Dawson, Filmmaker Magazine

“You can’t take your eyes off this fascinating documentary.” This Week in New York

Selected quotes from reviews of STANDING BY YOURSELF:

“Where a more formally considered film — like Larry Clark’s KIDS, to which STANDING BY YOURSELF has already been compared — would inevitably impose value judgments on the characters and situations (closeness for identification, distance for irony or disapproval), Mr. Koury’s technique implies nothing and imposes nothing. He is just there to watch, neither condemning his brother’s lack of ambition nor romanticizing it. For kids who feel trapped by an unsympathetic environment, this is what life looks like.” Dave Kehr, The New York Times

“A seat-of-the-pants documentary, with a homemade style and a fractured soul. This film possesses a strain of raw truth that Harmony Korine only dreams about.” John Anderson, Newsday

“One of the 10 Best unseen films of 2002. This shattering feature provided a rare glimpse into the harrowing underside of American youth culture and signals the arrival of a talented filmmaker of enormous risk-taking potential.” Phil Hall,

“Standing by Yourself is a haunting and thorough film. It’s what punk rock music used to be, and what the video medium could use more of: spirit, perception, conviction.” Jeremiah Kipp,

“Chilling in its objective portrait of dreary, lost twenty-first century America.” Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Review
