” An imaginative and deeply affecting effort……Half-Life marks the debut of a promising, truly independent film artist.”

    – The Hollywood Reporter

“Refreshingly entertaining and original … beautifully audacious, taking hold of all its risks and letting them run free to flourishing ends.”

– Indiewire

“Exists on a whole other, higher level of cinematic ambition than any other film at Sundance this year….. It is formally inventive, deeply personal and emotionally compelling…. “

    – Mike Ryan, Hammertonail.com

“An ‘Asian-American Beauty’ set against a backdrop of global decay and illuminated by splashes of ‘Waking Life’-style animation… evinces the sort of imagination that is necessary for human survival in the world as we know it.”

    – Daily Variety

  1. I think a great deal about the risk a woman puts her children at when she remarries or takes a live-in boyfriend. Gavin de Becker wrote in Protecting The Gift that children of divorce are at more risk from a step father than from any other factor in their lives.
    Don’t know if you’re interested, just thought of it. Will try to see her film, sounds interesting.
