Seimetz assuredly updates the pulp scenario with contemporary indie-film vernacular.

Film Comment Magazine

Musty, sticky, hot, and taut with psychopathological tension, Amy Seimetz's feature-length directorial debut is, to put it mildly, a bad trip.

Unspools like a Françoise Sagan novel: purposefully, enigmatically and with a raw emotional purity that makes its volatile central couple appear even more defenseless than they really are.

Writer-director Amy Seimetz's oddly sunny film noir is a classic tale of young lovers on the run, reminiscent in tone of the darkly comic moments in Terrence Malick's "Badlands."

[Audley's] richly textured debut is assured in every choice, from first frame to last.

Working wonders on a tight budget, Seimetz uses handheld cameras and tight compositions to create an air of claustrophobic intensity interspersed with moments of ragged beauty.

Seimetz hasn't quite figured out how to sustain long-form tension; by the time this modest microindie noir starts laying its cards on the table, your attention will have already folded.

Like seemingly everything that Seimetz touches lately, it's great. Confident, stylish, and with a remarkable sense of place, Sun Don't Shine truly works.

The Playlist

This is the feature directorial debut of actress Amy Seimetz, and while it doesn't quite go all the way, it demonstrates an interesting sense of style and a firm handle on expressing an inner world on film.

This unconventional, unsettling couple-on-the-run tale works best as an exercise in ambiguous atmosphere.

Although the film may not always be as aesthetically involving as better-budgeted productions, the performances are really the point, so by keeping focused on her actors Seimetz succeeds in making it all work.

Amy Seimetz's intoxicating slice of genre revisionism earns its "neo" prefix, envisioning a brightly sinister world where desperation is the new normal.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

'I gotta take a route that don't make sense,' Leo says, explaining his haphazard getaway plans, and his remark becomes a sort of mission statement for the lost, hapless, maladjusted and not particularly intelligent souls who inhabit this 'mumblenoir.'

Captures the wildly flailing energy and exhausted torpor of grinding frustration as well as the flickering grace of stifled dreams.

Eye for Film

The sun don't shine but you may find it quite hard to breathe, such is the tension of Amy Seimetz's impressive debut feature, which uses the oppressive, sultry heat of Florida to accentuate the over-bearing atmosphere.
