Interview with Director Eldar Rapaport - GayVancouver.net
"(Eldar Rapaport) is an expert director, who manages to tease out a captivating aesthetic in the film without it ever feeling inorganic or misplaced. In fact, the direction really drives the feel, look, and pace of the feature perfectly."
"..The film doesn’t solely concern itself with looking pretty. Behind its artsy veneer is a well observed story. The narrative finely picks through the emotions, motives, and manipulations of Troy, Jonathan, and Raul as they battle through their awkward love triangle."
