REVIEWS

“An inventive, whimsical and delightfully oddball story of the immigrant experience, PROBLEMISTA marks the promising writing and directing debut of Julio Torres.”

Adam Graham

Detroit News

“What Torres nails is breathtaking, especially that midnight anxiety at the ATM, the scanning for sketchy cash jobs online and, most sneakily and warmly, a blooming connection.”
Joshua Rothkopf

Los Angeles Times

“It’s a marvelous mixture of surrealism and social satire that depicts the American dream as a nightmare of bureaucracy and phone calls to customer service. There’s nothing more absurd, the film argues, than the mundane.”

Shirley Li

The Atlantic

“This fearless, authentic debut showcases immense command of a unique and inventive form of humor, while touching on a very real issue with heart and candor.”
