Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“Gerbase’s thoughtful, precise little film would have marked an impressive enough arrival under normal circumstances. As it is, it might endure as more era-evocative than many of the intentional pandemic dramas to come…With disconcerting accuracy, ‘The Pink Cloud’ nails small specificities of everyday life shorn of live human contact.”
thumbs-up

“All told, the scenario initially feels much too dramatic to accurately reflect our current moment…Unfortunately, this boldly mundane take on forced isolation gives way to a regular sort of mundanity….[It] feels like a familiar take on a couple that moved in together too quickly.”
