Cast & Crew
"An early contender for best movie of the year."
"Backwards Faces is proof that with a good script, talented cast, visionary direction, and a wormhole that it actually can work."
"...with two multi-faceted central acting performances in remarkably demanding roles, Backwards Faces is a mind-melting freak-out to savour; if you like smart sci-fi comedy, look no further."
"A script that will have you thinking deeply while laughing out loud at the same time."
"...for an indie small-budget film, this was very well executed. A complex story told well in the simplest of ways."
"Imagination and skill over budget wins every time."

Meet Chris Aresco | Independent Film Maker
Filmmaker Chris Aresco interviewed on THE VAN SHOW
"...not just a remarkable achievement but a fantastic film, ingenious, smart, funny, fast moving and ingenious (it’s worth saying twice)."
"In a time when originality in film isn’t as prevalent you have to hand it to the creatives behind the film for refusing to sugarcoat their ideas."
"What Aresco has done is take an interesting sci-fi concept which hints at larger things outside its confined settings, only to utilise the low-budget setting to its advantage."
"...an out of the ordinary Sci-Fi Comedy about finding out who we really are deep down, becoming an essay on behavioral patterns and the pursue of the best possible outcome for our nonsensical existence."

"Backwards Faces is a niche film that capitalizes on its edgy dexterity to turn its high-minded discussion and indie spirit into something unconventional yet effective."
"What I like about films like Backwards Faces...is that the bare-bones nature of it all forces the story and acting to be strong enough to hold the viewer’s interest."
