“It might be a pointless exercise but it's one we can't resist, delighting in the chance to revel in a baffling fiction, one where reality is transfigured by the wild possibilities of dreams.”
—Chris Priestman, KILL SCREEN

“You're both part of the scene and an observer of it, both the perpetrator and the victim of an act that you're steered toward at every turn.”
—Matt Suckley, VICE
