  1. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film The Quiet One

    No easy answers. Sentimentality is astutely dampered. Some great shots in 1948 Harlem. Lo-Budge. Dated but still carries its veracity. A talented group of film makers--early NY indie. The kid stays in the picture.

  3. Duncan Jones's rating of the film The Quiet One

    Combining mimesis of the objective documentary with the expressionistic perspective of a silent hero, this film's ambitious technique overcomes its technical failings. The amalgamation of the dreamlike shimmer of the school and the blackness of the fairytale countryside with the grey realism of the city may create a heightened atmosphere, but an emotional veracity is maintained, compassionate as it is unsentimental.
