"Fantastic portrait of a band and its leader that works on so many different levels. What I love about the film is that what starts out with a look at a band changes into a look at what it takes to be in a band and how the relationships outside of the band are forced to change because of the dynamics of the band."
- Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
"10 Must-See Documentaries at DOC NYC."
"The members of Peelander-Z unmask themselves for revealing new doc MAD TIGER... For close to two decades fans have known the band with their personas held firmly in place, their colorful costumes seldom removed, but the opportunity to meet Peelander-Z has finally arrived, and the line between artist and person is blurring."
- Silvas Valentino, Village Voice
"One of the most amazing Mexican films in many a year...The Violin is filmmaking in its purest form. The debut film by Francisco Vargas moves us with its lyricism and shakes us with its honesty. A film that's moving, urgent and necessary."
- Guillermo del Toro, Director of Pan's Labyrinth
THE WIND JOURNEYS

- Justin Change, Variety

THEORY OF OBSCURITY
"There's plenty of eye and ear-catching stimulation in this survey of the Residents' 40-year career."
- Dennis Harvey, Variety
"While hundreds of bands will be struggling to emerge from the obscurity at SXSW 2015, one set of oddballs will be celebrating a 40-year home there...the film delves deep into the apocrypha and mystery of the one-of-a-kind, dissonance-crazed band. "
- Christopher R. Weingarten, Rolling Stone
"Fans will appreciate this loving probe into the determinedly anonymous history of S.F.'s superstar art weirdos, now closing in on 50 years of seemingly bottomless inspiration."
- Adrian Mack, Straight.com
