New York Times Critic’s Pick: Braden King’s HERE Raises Questions of Philosophy
“There are vistas in Braden King’s metaphysical road movie, “Here,” that are so beautiful you want to step through the screen and disappear into the Armenian landscape where much of it was filmed… The trains of thought stirred up by the film’s contemplation of what is here and what is there — and where you are — are endless and stimulating.”
Stephen Holden, The New York Times, April, 2012

This is Where You Work: Braden King’s Office
“‘With all these devices,” King says as he gestures to his iPhone, “you never have to be where you are.” The comment is appropriate, as King’s film, HERE, is about nothing so much as having an appreciation and understanding of where one is.”
Zachary Wigon, Filmmaker Magazine, April 2012

Filmmaker Magazine, February, 2012

Across the Universe: Braden King’s HERE
An assured fiction-feature debut, HERE is not only a synthesis of King’s previous work, but a bold endeavour to make a film inspired by a love of map-making and the mythology of exploration.”

HERE [ THE STORY SLEEPS ] – Live at Sundance New Frontier

Eric Hynes, Sundance Film Festival Blog, January 29, 2011

Sundance Interview: Director Braden King
“HERE is the story of a romance told in vibrant images. The tiny, dreamy moments spent gazing at the rushing world from a car window, or drinking and laughing with new and old friends – these are the memories that HERE burns into your brain.”
James Ponsoldt, Filmmaker Magazine, January 28, 2011

HERE: Love in the Time of Google Maps
“King’s blending of naturalism and pure cinematic flourish, the startlingly direct romantic philosophy nestled within layers of enigmatic writing, packs an unexpectedly powerful emotional punch. It’s the road trip romance reinvented, remapped.”
Karina Longworth, LA Weekly, January 24, 2011
