“Watching two men struggle to have control, to find meaning, and to create art feels like a mirror back on anyone who struggles to create in a world where they have little control. This documentary has a real power in the un-actualized nature of it’s original intention. Perhaps in the un-actualized nature of both the subject and the filmmaker we can learn something about how we approach our lives.” ~Kurt Shrader 

“A fantastic film; engaging and funny.” ~Lars Johnson
