"BLOWN AWAY BY CHARLIE ZONE...My favorite flick of the festival."
"A PERSONAL THRILLER that comes from co-writer/director Melski's heart."
"WELL-ACTED BY GLEN GOULD in the lead role, well-structured but classically styled, with even a few academic twists to surprise the viewer...Everything makes for a film that thriller fans should enjoy."
"STRONG PERFORMANCES...takes a generic action template and makes it lively"
"KEEPS YOU GUESSING TIL THE END...Charlie Zone is partly an action-packed violent crime movie about the seedier side, partly a heartfelt drama about rural life, loves lost and families torn apart."

- Arts East -
"A visceral experience....Gould and Crew are fantastic, he providing the film’s sad soul and her its flickers of passion and light... A rough, ragged, spirited ride that delves into dark and touchy subject matter. It’s well-paced and full of genuine surprises. And it's never boring." Read more
