The New York Times
As Frankie, Mr. Marlowe delivers a quiet, moving performance of such subtlety and truthfulness that you almost feel that you are living his life.

Adept as both timely character study and epochal drama, Test wonderfully manages fully formed humanism without sentimentality.

Writer-director Chris Mason Johnson's important, assured drama best succeeds as a snapshot of a moment in time when every gay man is forced to decide how AIDS will change his life.

When Frankie, an understudy in a small dance company, is given his chance to perform, he, and Test itself, come to life.

Clumsy metaphors and contrived attempts to articulate Frankie's fears-especially as he awaits the results of the titular test-diminish the emotional authenticity engendered by Daniel Marks' hyper-real cinematography and the film's incisively curated soundtrack.

Test is a slow burn that builds to an impressive end, although the rest of film is in need of that same kind of forward-driving energy.

The AIDS scare remains as much window dressing as do other period details such as rotary phones and cassette tapes. Test seems to be about dance above all, with choreographed montages filling the bulk of its running time.
