Distinctive and provocative. Adams produces work that is too prickly and individual to categorize.
Micro in budget, macro in ambition, accomplishment, and scope. Prompts multiple viewings, and deserves them.
I was absolutely floored by AMITY. I’m not sure I’ve experienced a film quite like it. A triumph on every level.
So much more ambitious and intelligent and accomplished than the films that come out of Sundance every year.
A must see. Wildly ambitious and overwhelming. A fresh-feeling sense of dystopian dread.
An arresting talent. Very different, period. Fascinating to the point of repeat viewings.
Adams is playing on a whole other level.
Richard von Busack
Adams is no longer a local genius but a national contender.
Poignant and engrossing. A very fine film which stays with me.
It's a sucker punch of a film, and its creator is a master in the making.
BABNIK marks Adams as a fresh directing talent. It’s a rousing success.
Adams has a deceptive style; initially his films seem loosely shot, but the aggregation of seemingly tossed-off scenes tightens like a noose.
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.
A true find. Beautifully realized. Every single moment of the story rings true, aided by uniformly excellent performances.
