“A revelation!” Toronto Film Festival
“Exhilaratingly idiosyncratic, Veiroj’s film is ultimately an ode to the blind faith in the transformative power of film.” Sight and Sound
“Shot in color but produced in edible, Oreo-toned black and white, A Useful Life transitions seamlessly from indoors to outdoors, from nostalgia to hope.” NY Times
“Utterly Irresistible.” Radio Times
“A small film with a big heart, Federcio Veiroj’s tale of a beleaguered cinematheque and its life-shy film programmer, is a charming ode to the big screen.” View London
