      Audience Member This is definitely a weird movie, but gosh darn, it stuck with me for some reason. And I look forward to seeing what the lead Bill Dawes does next. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/08/21 Full Review Audience Member Bill Dawes carries an odd duck of a film that will stay with you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/17/20 Full Review Audience Member Started with so much potential but half way through it became tedious for no reason. You won't hate that you watched it but you won't remember it either. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/31/18 Full Review Audience Member Little slow in the middle, but this film has stayed with me for weeks for now. Some great lines and amazing acting. How come THIS is the type of movie that comes and goes without anyone seeing, and a movie that makes no sense like 3 Billboards is an Oscar frontrunner? Check out this gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this film. Stand out performance from Bill Dawes!

      Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times Director Debra Eisenstadt, who also edited and co-wrote with Zeke Farrow, effectively draws us into Ken's challenging world and conflicted psyche, aided immeasurably by actor-comic Dawes' dimensional, empathetic performance. Sep 28, 2017 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire It's a tricky, complicated movie, and Dawes and Butler generate a great, weird chemistry. Nov 17, 2016 Full Review Michael Agresta Austin Chronicle It does display a sharp eye for the rootless edges of the L.A. showbiz world, where everyone is some variety of creepy weirdo. Mar 15, 2016 Full Review Jessica Baxter Hammer to Nail Before the Sun Explodes is difficult to watch, but if you can stomach it, you'll be rewarded with a compelling case study of people who live their lives, teetering on the verge of a complete breakdown.
