Notes

View Linda's clip library here: http://bit.ly/lindachenvimeo2019 And other news here: http://bit.ly/lindachenlistly Critics on 'Rear view': 'It was shot in a single take, which is credit to both actors, who not only perform sequences of dialogue borrowed from a variety of road movies but remain in character in the lengthy lacunae between exchanges... the fact that it was clearly taken as a single shot, together with the intensity of the performances, makes it unexpectedly absorbing.' -Christopher Allen, The Australian. '... the film is gripping because you wonder if something is about to happen in the strange intimacy you're witnessing. Enough transpires to keep you in suspense, as the libidinous presence of the women surges around each other's ennui.' -Robert Nelson, The Sydney Morning Herald. '...a feat of endurance coupled with forced voyeurism.' -Julie Shiels, The Conversation. 'With the film being shot in a single 90-minute take, Randall and Chen’s performances couldn’t be controlled in post-production. As a consequence, with its severely restricted scope and constantly present cast of two, the film takes on an increasingly theatrical sensibility as it rolls on.' -Stephanie Convery, The Guardian. On 'Fragments': 'The performances by the cast of eight actors are uniformly excellent... The depth of character work... is outstanding and their monologues are presented with skill and confidence.' -Len Power, Canberra Critics' Circle 'The play was deftly performed by a team of young adults, all of who delivered the script with confident and nuanced performances.' -Arne Sjostedt, CityNews. 'The cast delivers the angst-driven script movingly.' -Erin Stewart, ArtsHub.
