CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY
“It’s a finely woven tapestry that feels as relevant and alive as the place you live”
“Citizen Jane takes on an invigorating richness as it delves into issues of sexism, economic despair and the complex idea of the ‘master builder’”
Timeout New York
“[A] bracing, invigorating documentary”
4/5 – Guardian
“A daring, original film that doesn’t offer straight answers, but is definitely worth the trip”
4/5 – Entertainment.ie
“A slow-burn environmental horror movie saturated with psychological dread and an enveloping sense of place, Without Name marks a confident first feature from Irish filmmaker Lorcan Finnegan”
“A tale of bad-ass bad karma, as the Bard might not have put it”
4/5 – Irish Times
“Harmonium builds uneasiness masterfully, and midway through a shocking act changes the film’s direction entirely”
4/5 – Independent
“Although the story unfolds at a steady pace over two hours, the filmmaking is sufficiently elegant and metronomically efficient as to make every minute gripping, especially after the tragic twist halfway through the story”
4/5 – Guardian
