“Shot in 19 days on a minuscule budget, it’s a threadbare-looking movie short on extras and exteriors with stock footage standing in for most of the establishing shots. But this paucity of resources wouldn’t be such a problem if it didn’t also extend to the vision behind the project. Timoner brings no palpable passion nor any particular point of view.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/07/2019

“A drab-looking chase picture awash in tedious exposition and overbearing period pop culture references. The movie appears to visually constrict as it goes along, beginning in the vast reaches of outer space and moving through progressively smaller and less spectacular settings until finally everyone’s having a fist-fight in a rec room full of junk.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/06/2019

“I find Perry’s films fascinating in how violently they whiplash from juvenile tastelessness to churchy sermonizing and back again. The lowest of lowbrow comedy is interrupted by exhortations to get right with Jesus. Meanwhile, all of this is staged with such little regard for basic principles of filmmaking that certain scenes approach the realm of outsider art.” – North Shore Movies, 03/02/2019

“An 84-minute collage with the sensory impact of an audio-visual apocalypse, The Image Book is a discursive and disjointed procession of lightning-quick clips and fractured scene fragments snatched out of everything from classic Hollywood movies to ISIS recruitment videos, stitched back-to-back and upside down in a swirling stream of consciousness.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/01/2019
