    This confident first feature from the actor Amy Seimetz is much more invested in atmosphere than in plot.

    Like "Upstream Color," Sun Don’t Shine owes a sizable debt to the philosophical lyricism of Terrence Malick. Working wonders on a tight budget, Seimetz uses handheld cameras and tight compositions to create an air of claustrophobic intensity interspersed with moments of ragged beauty.

    Amy Seimetz's richly textured debut is assured in every choice, from first frame to last.

    Amy Seimetz's intoxicating slice of genre revisionism earns its "neo" prefix, envisioning a brightly sinister world where desperation is the new normal.

    Although the film may not always be as aesthetically involving as better-budgeted productions, the performances are really the point, so by keeping focused on her actors Seimetz succeeds in making it all work.

    It’s an interesting hybrid of the relationship movie, mumbly indie and dark murder film, and the combination works here, for the most part.
