Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times "Loves Her Gun" is one of the most soothing examinations of fear you're ever likely to see. Jan 9, 2014 Full Review Andrew O'Hehir Salon.com Marslett has a real feeling for this place and these people ... Jan 9, 2014 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety Arrives at a destination that may strike some as too pat, but getting there is nonetheless consistently interesting. Jan 8, 2014 Full Review Don Simpson Film Threat Geoff Marslett's Loves Her Gun studies the fine line between rational and irrational fear, as well as what it means to feel safe. Rated: 3.5/5 May 19, 2014 Full Review Elise Nakhnikian House Next Door This is Marslett's first live-action film (his SXSW 2010 favorite, Mars, was animated), and it's a promising start. Mar 15, 2013 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh PopMatters ...it takes over an hour to get around to what is most interesting about the plot: Allie's initiation into gun culture, and her psychological response to the power that comes from pulling a trigger.

laurie s What an absolute piece of sh'ite. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Geoff Marslett's starts out as a deceptively loose and almost gentle character study of a young woman who is viciously assaulted and makes a last minute decision to escape the urban industrial surroundings of her shared apartment in Brooklyn. She joins up with some newly met members of a band as they tour their way back home to Austin. What begins as an almost casual but interesting study of a wounded human trying to reconnect begins to shift. It is to Marslett's credit that this shift is achieved by gradually pulling us and his movie into a tighter focus. It is interesting how the film evolves into one of the more careful examinations of fear, trauma and the ways in which we try to negotiate our way past them. As the credits roll, I realized that LOVES HER GUN is something far more potent. This is an excellent depiction of not only our culture of threat, fear and danger for women -- but an all too realistic examination of a sort of "societal-knee-jerk" reaction to immediately jump to self-defense instead of actually help the victim with the actual core of the problem. All the more potent, the film does not hold your hand or push into some trite conclusion. This film will haunt you long after you see it. Highly recommended.
