My feature film directorial debut ‘Dave Made A Maze‘ has had a great run of press coming out of our World Premiere, and I’m exceedingly proud to share some excerpts—-to read the reviews in their entirety, click on the hyperlinks. Huge congratulations to the ‘Dave Made A Maze’ team! Plenty more to come!
“Wildly inventive on a micro-budget scale, actor Bill Watterson’s shift to directing is an impressively crafted feature that’s full of frequent surprises…” Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
“The first great surprise of 2017…Dave Made A Maze is the kind of film that makes someone a believer in the power of cinema and restores the faith of those already converted. Director Bill Watterson and writer Steven Sears have delivered a wildly original vision that defies genre classification, brought to life on a tight budget with a dynamically talented cast…” Substream Magazine
“It’s absurd, hilarious and filled with a sense of wonder… With a mix of live action, puppetry and animation, there’s nearly as much imagination on display in “Dave Made a Maze” as there is cardboard, and there’s more than 30,000 square feet of that.” Christopher Lawrence, Las Vegas Review Journal
“This isn’t your average comedy experience. The clever writing, off-beat soundtrack and meticulously crafted cardboard sets and “creatures” make this one of the most original and entertaining films in recent memory…” Luiz H.C., Bloody Disgusting
“Exploding with creativity…a ridiculously fun and absurd romp that had me chomping at the bit to uncover each and every unique room and passageway.” Adam Patterson, Film Pulse
“…a film that could very well be the result of Michel Gondry making Labyrinth as a slasher movie…The epic art design and ingenious sets provide a never-ending treat for the eyes.” Loïc Valceschini, Screen Anarchy
“A visually inventive tour-de-force of anarchic glee…Dave Made a Maze is a marvelous gem of an indie comedy.” Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer To Nail
“Watterson succeeded in conjuring up one of the most vivid, imaginative, and original movie worlds in recent cinema…We have the makings of a stone-cold cult classic with this one..” Nathanael Hood, The Young Folks
“Wildly inventive and slyly funny, featuring some absolutely incredible cardboard set designs…” Joe Bendel, Unseen Films
“One that I absolutely loved… It was a fun, fun movie… Nick Thune was fucking awesome… that one, I fucking loved…” Tim Drake, On The Mic with Tim Drake
Thank you to Sylvia and Mitch at Big Time PR, and to the journalists who took the time to take in the film!
