SCHNEIDER VS. BAX

- Ibad Shah, Indiewire
THE AUTOMATIC HATE
"Nothing short of brilliant."
- Alexander Lowe, We Got This Covered
" [One of] the 10 best films I saw at SXSW 2015... [with] the most explosively uncomfortable dinner party scene ever."

- Peter Debruge, Variety
"...an unflinching look at the unwholesome underbelly that, to the rest of the country's chagrin, defines the Deep South."

THE GREATEST EARS IN TOWN: THE ARIF MARDIN STORY
"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
"...thrilling and packed with illuminating details and striking personalities..."
- The New York Times
"The competition itself provides considerable suspense as well as dazzling performances..."
