REVIEW: ‘The Maury Island Incident’ a ‘strange, weirdly resonant movie that blurs truth’
Blogging by Cinema Light has reviewed our film, and here’s an excerpt courtesy James S. Wilson:
Schaefer has a very sure hand when it comes to directing these scenes making them slicing-taught and doing precious little camera movement, drawing you in (he gets immense help from shooter Mike Boydstun, who does some black-magic tricks of back-lighting and in the saucer scenes makes the scenes jitter and pop in panic and confusion).
