press for Synchronic

"The duo's signature narrative ingenuity and ability to spin tension seemingly out of thin air have translated fully intact."
- AV Club
"Moorhead and Benson allow the viewer to do most of this symbolic unpacking, resulting in a film that resonates on a deeper level than most disposable science fiction."
- RogerEbert.com
"The film proves that the two filmmakers remain in a daring, go for broke league of their own."
