Press Quotes

Why Don't You Play in Hell is a frenzy of joy and colour, held together by an unrelenting disinterest in narrative logic.

     —Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, The Blue Lenses

A blood-soaked gang saga that builds to a madcap battle royal.

     —Steve Dollar, The Wall Street Journal

Delivers adrenaline, chutzpah, and fake blood by the bucket-load, continually confounding audience expectations while offering up a twisted valentine to moviemaking in general and the disappearing medium of 35mm film in particular.

     —Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
