REVIEWS(titles below are links):
"An essential film about women and violence" --Gayle Trotter, Think Progress

"As both a life-in-Austin indie and a piercing social commentary, Loves Her Gun is gripping and thoroughly entertaining cinema, the sort of unnervingly real, thought-provoking movie that does the Austin film industry proud." --Don Clinchy, Slackerwood

"Her own descent into violence is so unsensationalized that it comes as a shock to see where it leads, at the same time that director Geoff Marslett and his co-writer, Lauren Modery, make it feel inevitable." --Elise Nakhnikian, Slant Magazine

"the film isn’t about guns; it’s about people, and Marslett seems to know them rather well. Certainly he knows how to elicit unscripted scenes of bristling realism from talented, undersung actors. But he also knows that community is where the interesting stories, and maybe the solutions, lie — a notion that both Rick Santorum and Hillary Clinton could get behind." -- Ted Scheinman, Los Angeles Review of Books


"Top 5 from SXSW Film" -- Chris Vognar, The Dallas Morning News

"Like Allie's current plight, the film has a sort of meandering feel that fits just right without making it seem like the story is going nowhere.  Her natural progression through various situations, good and bad, registers as real" --Annette Kellerman, Ain't It Cool News

"3 1/2 Stars" --Don Simpson, Film Threat

One minute she’s thriving and you’re thrilled for her, but slowly the darkness creeps back in and you’re begging her to make the right decision rather than lose herself to the memories of the attack." --Perri Nemiroff, Shockya
