Joe Utichi, Cinematical:
Announces a director with a true singularity of vision and a steadfast refusal to conform. In an age in which many of our most promising young talents tread the Syd Field path to Hollywood banality, this sort of director is in short supply.
[...]There are shades of Terrence Malick about Two Gates of Sleep‘s beautiful marriage of character and location, though even Malick gives us more to work with on a story level. Alistair Banks Griffin’s restraint within the telling of his tale will alienate many who’ll try and fail to engage with the film. But that’s because this form of storytelling is so inherently alien. Exposition is everything, we’re told, but Two Gates of Sleep dares to expose very little.
