DARK NIGHT
“Sundance at its best!”
Manohla Dargis, NEW YORK TIMES“Watching Dark Night in an actual movie theater is a surreal experience”
Peter Debruge, VARIETY

“Haunting”
Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE

“Sutton make cuts only when absolutely necessary, allowing the breath of the shot to land and expand out across the screen. This allows for the undercurrent of tension to ebb and flow with a frightening accuracy of just when and where it rises and falls and how it hits you. Dark Night is the first great film of 2016!”
TWITCH

“The most oblique of the festival’s many reflections on gun violence in America, Tim Sutton’s genuinely unsettling experiment — beautifully lensed by d.p. Helene Louvart — transforms the emptiness and alienation of suburban youth culture into a sort of collective dream-space, where the mundane takes on an ever-present undercurrent of dread.”
Justin Chang, VARIETY

“A thought-provoking requiem! This searing movie is absolutely a must-see”
THE PLAYLIST

“Among the top fifteen favorites of Sundance! The goal here is brutal honesty. What may feel obvious onscreen needs to begin feeling as obvious here, in real life.”
