88% Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? (2018) Not since Ross McElwee's Sherman's March has there been such a contemplative and resonating look at the South through a subjective documentary lens. ‐ Thrillist

78% Lou (2017) It's sappy, but the six-minute short earns its emotional denouement and does offer children a cute lesson about bullies within its delivery of slapstick and schmaltz.‐ Film School Rejects

Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2018
100% Negative Space (2018) I don't know if it's meant to have an emotional payoff, but if so it's not effective, perhaps because it's so brief, yet that's fine given the rest of its charms.‐ Film School Rejects
