Who I'd like to meet:
If [director Kentucker Audley] continues to make eccentric gems like 'Team Picture' he will be assured a place as an important figure in American independent film.
Nick Dawson, Filmmaker Magazine
"3.5 stars out of 4. [Team Picture] hits the screen with dead-on accuracy...perfectly captures a young man at a moment of almost pure indecision...utterly convincing and deadpan-hilarious." Memphis Commercial Appeal
"A lazy, Memphis afternoon of a movie...In little over an hour 'Team Picture' creates a world and the lives in it, and wisely leaves them all hanging."
Boston Phoenix ..
"A cinematic tone poem...says volumes about the difficult path one must take from childhood to adulthood."
"A pretty funny character study, a shambling ode to the fine art of hanging out" New York Sun
"There's great, understated comedy...and there's also tenderness." Memphis Flyer
"For all its air of off-the-cuff indeterminacy, Team Picture is actually quite pointed." Sight and Sound
"Gloriously directionless...Audley directs the film with a light but deft touch, like Howard Hawkes at half speed." Oxford American
"At times Audley’s long shots approach the painterly beauty of pastoral landscapes. I'm crushing heavily on 'Team Picture' right now." Spout
.."Team Picture is a gorgeous movie, sad and dreamy in places, with a quality of acting and characterization and an ear for sound and nuance that few movies achieve." FANZINE
"There’s a sense in Team Picture of almost hyper-naturalism, a dedication to every small emotional moment and an acute and penetrating observation of how life works."
"Audley's studious avoidance of rhetorical heightening reveals a complex world on the other side of the programmatic conflicts and patterned intensification of mainstream filmmaking."
Ray Carney, author of 'Cassavetes on Cassavetes'
