"Waiting on Alphie is a great film that has a lot of lasting appeal. Its humor and commentary on life and crime is fun and quite enjoyable. Not since Pulp Fiction has an Indie crime film combined so much spontaneous humor with hit man intrigue." - Jeremy Hanke, Microfilmmaker Magazine "Films buff who miss the days of gritty dialog-driven '90s indies like Things to Do In Denver When You're Dead and The Usual Suspects should check this out ..." - M. Faust, ArtVoice Film Critic "... an extremely interesting film, sort of a 'Dinner with Andre' with bullets ... like watching a very well made stage play." - Michael Norman Salesman, filmrep.com "Kevin Hicks and Eric Lindstrom have made 'Waiting on Alphie,' their first locally produced film ... a Tarantino-like chamber piece set in a Buffalo diner between two guys. One has been assigned to kill the other, who wants not to be dead.

Dark and absurd and even funny the thrill of the story isn't left to chance." - Maya Rao, Ithaca Journal
