"Fascinating to the point of repeat viewings."

  • Glenn Kenny
    N.Y. Times

    Distinctive and provocative. Adams produces work that is too prickly and individual to categorize.

  • Jim Ridley
    Village Voice

    Micro in budget, macro in ambition, accomplishment, and scope. Prompts multiple viewings, and deserves them.

  • Mark Bomback

    I was absolutely floored by AMITY. I’m not sure I’ve experienced a film quite like it. A triumph on every level.

  • Mike D'Angelo
    A.V. Club

    So much more ambitious and intelligent and accomplished than the films that come out of Sundance every year.

  • Karina Longworth
    L.A. Weekly

    A must see. Wildly ambitious and overwhelming. A fresh-feeling sense of dystopian dread.

  • Dennis Harvey

    An arresting talent. Very different, period. Fascinating to the point of repeat viewings.

  • Vadim Rizov
    Filmmaker Magazine

    Adams is playing on a whole other level.

  • Richard von Busack

    Adams is no longer a local genius but a national contender.

  • Phillip Lopate
    N.Y. Times

    Poignant and engrossing. A very fine film which stays with me.

  • Lauren Baggett
    Screen Anarchy

    It's a sucker punch of a film, and its creator is a master in the making.

  • Ray Greene

    BABNIK marks Adams as a fresh directing talent. It’s a rousing success.

  • Glenn Kenny
    N.Y. Times

    Adams has a deceptive style; initially his films seem loosely shot, but the aggregation of seemingly tossed-off scenes tightens like a noose.

  • Fernando Croce

    An adventurous filmmaker continuing to push forward. His use of actors, light, editing rhythms, and sound design are all calibrated to the emotions on the screen, and often to the extent of becoming nearly hallucinatory.

  • Charlie Olsky

    A true find. Beautifully realized. Every single moment of the story rings true, aided by uniformly excellent performances.
