Movie Reviews

“Once upon a time, shooting porn would have been the fastest form of sabotage. But in this fractured fairy tale, it could well be the path to his redemption.” Peter Debruge: Variety

“Utterly singular and weirdly lovable (…) Baker ditches the corporate utopia of Disney World in favor of a more rustic vision of the American Dream” David Ehrlich: IndieWire 

“He is sensitive to the fact that adults can and maybe should enjoy pornography and the labor of that industry deserves as much or more respect than other forms of work (…) Maybe [this] story deserves less of a fairy tale hue” David Katz: The Film Stage
