Quotes About Xavier Dolan
The critic Peter Bradshaw gave this assessment:
"Dolan’s creative motor runs on dialogue: people talking, talking, talking. Sex is the one thing that stops the flow. He gets his camera intimately close to his actors’ faces: a wide shot, or a thoughtful tableau, is relatively rare. His movies, for me, have become increasingly watchable, accessible and enjoyable because the feelings involved are increasingly real and deeply felt. There is such tenderness and gentleness in this film"
The journalist Brendan Kelly was praiseful with his words:
"Dolan makes very personal films that mix melodrama, stylish visual direction and art-film smarts. And he has matured along the way"
The film critic Eric Kohn described him thus:
"Dolan, prolific but still a vibrant and youthful filmmaker, excels at capturing the uncertainties of twenty-somethings in the midst of major life transitions"
The writer Andrea Jean Varraud was inspired to say:
"Dolan gives voice to people on the margins of society, bullied homosexuals and transsexuals expressing freedom and vitality through Dolan’s extremely poetic and aesthetic vision. Identity is created by diversity as well as through painful existence"
