Critics reviews

Heat And Sunlight is very much in the hotheaded, semi-improvisational, warts-and-all mode that had been pioneered by John Cassavetes two decades earlier, and that barely exists anymore. Few people talk about the film these days, but it’s arguably more riveting now than it was at the time, if only because so few contemporary indie movies are willing to risk looking foolish or uncool by being so uncomfortably raw.
