“DONALD CRIED suggests the shadings of a psychological thriller stuffed into the mold of a boisterous R-rated comedy.” – Eric Kohn, Indie Wire
“Simultaneously tense, funny and melancholic.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
“DONALD CRIED is an acutely insightful, exquisitely written and acted triumph for Mr. Avedisian, who understands how the past permanently clings to us.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
“Melds offbeat humor, cringeworthy pathos, and naked human emotion into a lunatic mélange.” – Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
