Reviews: I Used to Be Darker (2013)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Dustin Jansick @ Way Too Indie
    • Excerpt: There are some qualities about I Used to Be Darker that can be appreciated from a technical standpoint, but it is too underwhelming to leave a lasting impression.
  • Carson Lund @ Are the Hills Going to March Off?
    • Excerpt: The virtue of Porterfield’s regional filmmaking is precisely its balance of atmospheric immersion and emotional directness. His work refuses to deal in platitudes even as it adopts narrative content that relies on generality.
  • [New – 1/31/14] | Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: Slow scenes at the beginning turn into the pace of life
  • Don Simpson @ Smells Like Screen Spirit
    • Excerpt: I Used To Be Darker is probably the most conventionally structured three-act narrative you will ever see Porterfield direct; nonetheless he still finds ways to integrate his typical high levels of realism into the production.
