“…. And some of the most disquieting moments are immeasurably enhanced by the lighting of Ben Stanton.

At one crucial point I found myself peering desperately into the shadows to see precisely what expression was playing across Zack’s face. As the atmosphere of veiled antagonism in the small apartment becomes claustrophobic, we sense Abby’s disorientation and fear growing. It’s born of a feeling that most of us have felt with an intimate, the sense that the person on the bed or the couch beside us has suddenly become a stranger, whose motives, needs, deepest desires are as unreadable as a map of a city we’ve never visited.”

– Charles Isherwood, New York Times, March 3, 2013
