LIVE CARGO Collection of Reviews Highlights

“Live Cargo is a mood piece, a tone poem of a place, a mythic tragedy driven by devastatingly human fallibilities.

“A pronounced sense of style and place suffuses the entire film, boding well for Sandler’s future projects.” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Arresting.” ★★★★ DEN OF GEEK

“Live Cargo is an unforgettable debut and a promise of greater heights to come.” CINEMACY

“The real star of Live Cargo is Sandler’s sense of poetry through setting. With minimal dialogue and not a lot of exposition, the entire thing almost works as a silent film, one where its alluring environments are rendered in shades of grey and deep blacks.” CROME YELLOW

“A stylistic entrance for Logan Sandler on the American Cinema front.” HOLLYWOOD GLEE

“Out of the films I saw at Tribeca this year, one that sticks with me is Live Cargo. [A]” PICTURE LOCK
