Audience Reviews for The Color Wheel

Incredible(ly funny, biting and real) dialogue, excellent performances and an unexpected twist or two add up to a striking directorial debut. If only it wasn't so very amateur in it's production values, it might have gotten a proper release and been added to the list of indie masterpieces.
