SKEZAG has cut through generations as a film which in its straight forward view takes us right into the reality of drugs. We find ourselves in a room with two Vietnam veterans who want to get high no matter what. The night explodes into a series of confrontations and confessions revealing the men, their humanity and their struggle. Before our very eyes we experience their "shooting up" heroin and the ultimate devastation of their drug use. Very realistic. A true mind-blowing and sobering experience.

Jeremy is a film portrait of the jazz genius and fine artist Jeremy Steig. Mr. Steig was a rarity: Flute was his first and only instrument. And in the view of many critics and musicians, he was a master. – The New York Times
