"The year's best short film, Hindle's CHINESE FIREDRILL is dazzling and sympathetic. By itself, the film demonstrates the importance of independent filmmaking and makes this a movie year to remember." - National Review

"Will Hindle's work is an experience, whatever else you want to call it, revealing a nearly perfect camera eye." - New Haven Register

"CHINESE FIREDRILL is an intellectually demanding film, but is essentially an overwhelming, disturbing unique emotional experience. I can't tell you how beautiful it is." - R. Corliss, Film Quarterly

Hindle's prize-laden work of cataclysmic visual and mental schisms stands as one-of-a-kind. Human universals crammed into a moment (infinity?) in one small enclosure (the universe?). The identifying viewer will judge.
