Critic Reviews

“A sobering story of electronics and social media over-taking the world we inhabit and the morals we should hold dear, The Cleaners is perhaps one of the most terrifying portraits of 21st Century online life ever committed to the screen.”

~At Darren’s World of Entertainment

“Social media has produced insoluble problems so inconceivably vast and complicated that they paralyze the mind. The Cleaners is a very noble effort to backspace us into reality.”

~Adrian Mack, The Georgia Straight
