SKATING TO NEW YORK

“Skating to New York looks terrifc”
Frank Scheck-Hollywood Reporter

“This movie is distinguished by its long, beautiful shots of the lads on the numbing”
Daniel M. Gold-NY Times

THE  SAMARITAN

“It’s very nicely shot”
Norman Wilner-Now Magazine

“Superebly render nightime scenes tha reek of noir.”
Robert Koehler-Variety

OFF WORLD

Francois Dagenais' gorgeous …lensing of sometimes spectacularly inhumane residential locations.
Dennis Harvey-Variety

Beautifully shot drama
Jason Anderson-Toronto Star

GUY X

“Hats are definitely off, however, to cinematographer François Dagenais, whose every shot hits its target, from the bleak beauty of a volcanic landscape to the nightmarish reality of a hospital ward..”
Rob Fraser - Empire

“Every frame bathes in beauty, thanks in no small part to cinematographer François Dagenais's exquisite attention to detail. The arctic location in the film is both suitably desolate and engagingly attractive and the film's oddly monotone colour palette suits it perfectly.”
Joe Utichi – Film Focus

NO MORE TEARS SISTER

“Looks  like a Satyajit Ray movie: beautiful and sedatingly slow with lush cinematography.”
Virginia Heffernan - NY Times

“With stunning visuals.”
Vhibuti Patel-Newsweek International Edition
