"4 STARS. EXCELLENT. A RATHER REMARKABLE NEO-NOIR FROM DEBUT DIRECTOR JEFFERSON MONEO, REMINISCENT OF RED ROCK WEST. ABSORBING, ATMOSPHERIC AND VERY WELL-ACTED!"
- KAM WILLIAMS, BARET NEWS SYNDICATE


"A UNIQUE TAKE ON THE OLD TIME WESTERN - COMPLETE WITH ECCENTRIC CRIMINAL TYPES AND A LESS THAN PRISTINE MOM AND SON TEAM YOU WON'T READILY FORGET."
- AMY R HANDLER, FILM THREAT


"A TOUCH OF NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN AND A LITTLE BIT OF FARGO"
- TORONTO FILM SCENE


"B+. IT WORKS SURPRISINGLY. LITZ ANCHORS A STRONG CAST, AND MONEO CREATES MOMENTS OF STRANGE GRACE THAT CONTRAST SHARPLY WITH ALL THE BLOODY VENGEANCE."
- NOW MAGAZINE & INDIEWIRE


"4 STARS. A BEAUTIFULLY CINEMATIC AND DELIGHTFULLY DEVILISH TALE. IT’S A TENSE AND SURPRISING MYSTERY. THERE IS A CRIMINAL ON THE RUN, A MANIPULATIVE, SAUCY VAMP WITH A PAST, AND SOME IMPOSING COWBOYS... AND OF ALL THEM HAVE GUNS."
- SCENE CREEK


"A STUNNING FILM THAT HARKENS BACK TO THE CLASSIC FILM NOIRS OF THE 40'S AND 50'S AS WRITER/DIRECTOR JEFFERSON MONEO CRAFTS A NARRATIVE THAT BORROWS FROM THE LIKES OF FRITZ LANG, OTTO PREMINGER, ORSON WELLES AND EVEN FROM A MORE CONTEMPORARY STANDPOINT, THE COEN BROTHERS. LITZ COMMANDS THE SCREEN WITH GALLONS OF FEMME FATALE MOJO AND MCHATTIE IS GREAT AS HER WORLD WEARY DAD. IT’S A GLORIOUS PIECE OF PULP STORYTELLING."
- DORK SHELF


"BIG MUDDY IS A MOODY AND ATMOSPHERIC THRILLER (WITH) A TERRIFIC ENSEMBLE CAST, INCLUDING A POWERFUL LEAD PERFORMANCE BY LITZ AND LEGROS IN A CHILLING TURN"
- EXCLAIM.CA


"BIG MUDDY IS AN EFFECTIVE CONTEMPORARY NOIR. FLASHES OF DAVID LYNCH POP IN AND OUT"
- PLAYBACK


"IT'S A NEW RELEASE THAT'S REMINISCENT OF 1990S CRIME INDIES, AND LITZ IS GREAT AS THE TINY BUT FIERCELY WILLED WOMAN"
- PITTSBURG CITY PAPER

An outlaw tale played out as a modern day murder ballad, Big Muddy follows grifter Martha Barlow who must come to terms with her dark past after her teenage son commits a horrible crime. On the run to survive she must dodge her sociopathic revenge-seeking former flame, and attempt to reconcile with her son's dangerous and long forgotten father in order to protect her estranged family.
