FILM THREAT GIVES "Foucault WHO?" 3.5 STARS!
Film Threat's Pete Vonder Haar writes: "An effectively sinister atmosphere,
setting the action in an actual bar and infusing everything with an appropriately
noir-ish tinge. 'Foucault Who?' is quite obviously a cautionary tale...
and one that would make anyone, gay or straight, think twice about taking
that attractive stranger home." Read the entire review!
THE BAY AREA REPORTER RATES "Foucault WHO?" the #1 short at the
San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (2002)
"A creepy crawly delight ... the ubiquitious Leon Acord expertly plays a barfly
so world-weary that we actually believe he could have bagged & banged Foucault"
David Lamble, Bay Area Reporter
