HE DIED WITH A FELAFEL IN HIS HAND
Winner - Grand Jury Prize (Best Film) - New York Int'l Film & Video Festival
Winner - Best Screenplay - New York Int'l Film & Video Festival
"Driven by absurdist humor, random off-the-wall moments of originality and a generally ararchic tone, it mixes the heightened silliness of youth cinema with a more studied, film-literate approach. ...those who like their cinema on the edge should find a lot to enjoy here."
- Erin Free, The Hollywood Reporter
"This carousel ride of bizarre characters and out-of-control situations [becomes] a reasonably satisfying whole."
- David Rooney, Variety
HELENA FROM THE WEDDING
"Beautifully modulated! Full of both the ache and the joy of real life."
- Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter
"Funny as hell! Helena From The Wedding boasts a strong ensemble cast...piercing humor...[and] a bittersweet sting that brings a smile to our faces and a lump in our throats."
- Cullen Gallagher, Hammer to Nail
"The acting performances are all perfect...It is a brutally realistic depiction of the trials and tribulations of 30-something couples and their friendships."
- Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit
"Brilliant storytelling...undeniable artistry!"
- Chris Cabin, Slant
"A marvelous tension between a prim comedy of manners and unbridled slapstick."

"This entertaining and engrossing movie plays like a chess game between director and viewers."
- Janos Gereben, San Francisco Examiner
KEY OF LIFE
"Breezy rhythm, witty dialogue and excellent thesping chemistry...a chessboard of ingenious subplots!"
- Maggie Lee, Variety
"Intelligent, amusing, and casually touching."
- Kong Rithdee, Cinema Scope
"Sweet, satisfying and very funny!"
"The film's siesta-speed pacing lets us bask in a cavalcade of sunny compositions, framed in ample CinemaScope dimensions. Nearly every shot is a joy to behold!"
- Kevin Lee, Time Out New York
"Touching! This supremely poised film...becomes richer and less familiar as it goes along."
- Dennis Lim, LA Times
"A masterwork of storytelling...a seemingly effortless performance of a sort we almost never see."
- Casey Burchby, DVDTalk.com
