2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
