This is a fascinating project ... iTunes TV & Movies Marketing - Cupertino, CA

This side of brilliant -- but brilliant nevertheless. I love the idea that one has to beg -- even with the Gettys being so much as Nazis. How troubled; the lack of trouble ... makes the drums drop and fall as easily as the words that escape the speaker ... that were right there, something that's not so easy to make the listener get on board. This is brilliant: "I earned the Gettys, A Billion Bucks ... the way they treat me really sucks." We're interested because it's done so damn well -- as much as I may dislike the people who get to talk at Getty's Museum, the hilarity being that the words are burnt by someone who knows how to make words work. - ScottSiders Long Beach, California February 22nd

Wow, that is powerful. Rachel.

Well, I just finished your film an hour ago. What a spectacular film. Peter V.
