REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..despite some pleasant backstage-footage filler, however, 12-12-12 ultimately so truncates its artists' performances..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
“..though the doc plays sincerity by the book, shoehorning in a ton of Jersey Shore cleanup, you get a real feeling for the crazy quilt of tristate community, bonded by crisis and "Baba O'Riley"..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..there are lots of memorable moments, some involving hurricane victims in Rockaway..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]
