REVIEWS

Jeannette  Catsoulis - The New York Times: NYT Critics' Pick "Emotionally ambitious...a lovely, low-key performance from Ms. Shelton"

Michał Oleszczyk -  RogerEbert.com: ★★★1/2 (out of 4) "A work of...simple, unforgettable beauty."

Matthew Dessem - The DissolveEssential Viewing: ★★★★ (out of 5) "A remarkable film...Something, Anything is the rare film that gently asks the big questions, then gives us space, and room." 

Zachary Wigon, The Village VoiceCritics' Pick: "A sure-handed, complex portrait of one woman's attempts to feel alive."

Jaime Christley, Slant: ★★★1/2 (out of 4) "The film turns what at first seemingly appears as Kodak moments into a study of a soul in transition."

Justin Chang, Variety: "Marks a quietly assured feature debut for writer-director Paul Harrill."

Julie Dawson - TV Bomb [UK]: ★★★★ "An impressive accomplishment...particularly remarkable for the deftness of touch with which it addresses such profound issues as religion, identity and personal fulfillment."

Josh Slater Williams - The Skinny [UK]: ★★★★  "A concise, fascinating exploration of American life, making pointed use of Southern cultural values for a more universal story"

Steven Neish - Hey U Guys [UK]: ★★★★  "Intimate, thoughtful and understated."

Cameron Ward - One Room With a View [UK]: ★★★★  "Peppered with quiet intensity, Something, Anything navigates both social realism and the sublime with deftly mediated restraint."

Jeffrey Overstreet - Looking Closer / Patheos: "Harrill has made something quiet, observant, provocative, and quite contrary to the popular narrative of the American love story....It’s truthful. It’s affecting. It’s poetic. It’s profound. And it’s often very beautiful."

Glenn Kenny - Some Came Running: "Harrill’s writing and directing is sensitive in the best way possible....[Ashley] Shelton’s performance has a steady intensity that gives off a soft but beautiful light throughout."

Joe Blessing - Stage Buddy: "Portrays a beautiful quest for meaning, with a simple authenticity."

Alex Barrett - Director's Notes: "A beautifully thoughtful debut feature."

Peter Labuza - The Cinephiliacs: "A real discovery."

JJ Murphy - On Cinema: "Deeply moving....Harrill’s film feels highly personal and contains an undercurrent of sadness that feels heartbreaking..."

Matt Prigge - Metro NYC: "Gentle, melancholy.... Recommended" 

M. Leary, Filmwell @ The Other Journal: "Alternately surprising and sublime."

David Hepburn - Milngavie Herald [UK]: “One of the true gems of this year’s festival circuit.”
