Hellion Glover, auteur, is a force to be reckoned with.”
--Laura Kern, The New York Times
impenetrably odd and tender poetry on the screen."
--Bill Stamets, The Chicago Sun-Times
with naked women in elephant masks, Shirley Temple, Glover being lowered
deus-ex-machina style into a Maxfield Parrish scene...It's like Fellini on
psychedelics -- wildly creative but completely twisted."
Ganahl, San Francisco Examiner
unlike anything I've ever seen before...the unrestrained id of an artist at full
frenzy, unafraid to mount onscreen what others would judiciously edit out.
Glover's film is like that the fever dream of a crazy person.
Dermody, Paper Magazine

--Kelly O. The Seattle Stranger Weekly
