Horror News Critic's Choice: "Special performance honors in the picture to Daniel de Weldon ... Stanislavski promoted the idea ... Many don't do it nearly as well. A central character tour-de-force... the camera eye is on de Weldon and he does not disappoint with his riveting presence." - Film Critic Kevin Nickelson
Los Angeles Times Critic's Choice: "Perfectly cast, Daniel de Weldon's languorous portrayal of self-preening Lot (Tennessee Williams) is an instance of unimpeachable camp - he touches up the roots of his tinted locks as reverently as he fondles his mother's precious crystal... performances make the experience richly entertaining." - Chief Critic Charles McNulty

LA Weekly Critic's Choice: "de Weldon sat staring into space playing out Shanley's Apache dance with scrupulous honesty and attention to the details, unfolding in the ebbs and flows of real-time... live-wire performance... was the art and craft of being... it matters because it's so rare when they get it so right, the authenticity of it in a world of fakery - a fleeting, sacred moment." - Steven Leigh Morris (Head Critic LA Weekly)

Recipient of the very hard-to-get L.A. Times "Critics Choice," last night I found out why. " - Steven Stanley
