In praise of death.

“A captivating excursion into surrealist Americana.  Schimberg, in this debut, demonstrates rare assuredness. Certain to leave audiences thinking, arguing, rejecting, celebrating. Here’s one you’ll talk about long afterward.” – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice CRITICS’ PICK

“#1 Best Undistributed Film of 2013!” – Christopher Bell, Indiewire’s The Playlist

“An astonishing, out-of-nowhere film.  Amidst all the cookie-cutter indies, Aaron Schimberg’s Go Down Death casts a mysterious spell. Highly recommended.” – Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine

“A unique, strange, unforgettable film, a half-remembered dream that will trouble and beguile the subconscious long after you’ve moved on. (A-)” – Gabe Toro, Indiewire

“One of the best films of the year!  An uncompromising feast of vision and atmosphere.” – Kentucker AudleyNoBudge

“Robert Altman meets Tod Browning…an immaculate, offbeat triumph. Rarely do homespun independent filmmakers convey such a distinctively original vision.” – Jon Dieringer, Screen Slate

“Irresistible!  Evokes the great novels of William Faulkner, even as Go Down Death offers us a resolutely modern filmic experience.  Schimberg appropriates the language of cinema and obeys only the rules he sets out for himself. The result is a thrilling leap into the unknown.” – Simon Laperrière, Fantasia

“A singular work of DIY punk filmmaking” – Lisa K. Broad, Tativille

“Go Down Death is as eccentric and daring as American indie cinema gets.” – Matthew Campbell, Starz Denver
