“A near flawless script full of love, passion and the dark side of family life, director Michael Wechsler delivers his vision with a simple slap in the face. Wonderful actors and brilliant editing carry the audience down the path of demons we all have, or know someone who does. One can only hope this brings Judd Hirsch into the cinema world.”
Paul Booth, Writer, Influx Magazine
“Wechsler smoothly combines elements to create a family drama about secrets and lies in the shape of an effectively creepy thriller.”
Caryn James, Film Critic, Indiewire
“Altered Minds delivers a quality mystery; a psychological thriller hidden within the trappings of a familial drama. It’s a walk down a long closet full of unexpected skeletons. This is a solid psychological thriller that keeps you guessing, with more than a few tricks up its sleeves to make for some arresting emotional and physical responses. While the film eventually explains itself beyond most ambiguities, the resolutions offered up don’t disappoint.”
Mark Bell, Film Threat
“Altered Minds is an engrossing psychological thriller that doesn’t rely on special effects or other tricks to pull you in. Top rate acting and a taut script keep you guessing! Hirsch at his best since Ordinary People.”
Adam Schartoff, Founder, Film Wax
“Enthralling psychological thriller with a strong point of view by writer/director Michael Wechsler exploring a sensational subject – mind control.”
“An earnest psychological drama, beautifully shot, that’s at times as chilling – and sad – as Ang Lee’s “THE ICE STORM.”
James Ulmer, International editor, Cinema Without Borders
"A dark and moody psychological thriller, there is a chilly and rather desolate tension to Michael Z Wechsler’s Altered Minds, a film driven by a jagged sense of atmosphere and a series of grim but impressive central performances."
Mark Adams, Chief Film Critic, Screen International
“Superb ensemble performances makes Altered Minds corrosively honest and engrossing as its mystery slowly unravels.”
Produces and distributes rich entertainment media focused on cathartic stories of ordinary people transcending extraordinary circumstance.
