“WE is an explosive sexual odyssey” – TheFarSighted 

“We is an explosive sexual odyssey that confronts the dangerous naivete of adolescence and the discovery of power. ..Blood, sex and videotape passes through their hands as they exploit a politician, kill Femke and an innocent mother, torture a dog and prostitute themselves. Total debauchery…Sure to leave your stomach churned and your scruples challengedwith its exploration of sexuality and power.” – TheFarSighted 

WE Is, “a brutally frank piece of filmmaking” Says DVDCompare

“Throughout the film are interspersed some ugly and violent scenes that challenge whether we are viewing an exploitative film, or a film that is shot with a completely honest point of view that is committed to showing the facts for what they truly are. Either way this is a brutally frank piece of filmmaking and audiences may not be prepared for the onslaught to the senses that is involved. Eller is a one man tour-de-force as he writes, produces and directs this explosive package all in his debut film. Whether you like it or not, this is a powerful film that challenges our assumptions and world views; isn’t that ultimately what real art should do?” – DVDCompare

WE Got ItsBlogginEvil’s Blood Pumping

We’s unreserved sexual boot up the censorship’s tight behind is this junkie’s drug of choice that gets the blood pumping in all the right places…As a sincere compliment to director Rene Eller, We belongs in the maladjusted family tree that also bears the rotten teenage fruit of Larry Clarks’ Kids and Catherine Hardwicke’s Thirteen and harks back to the Golden Age of Dutch Cinema with the Dutch Sex Wave from the 1970’s…We is also an important film of human callousness hidden within the prospect of free love, an age-old infiltration and exploitation concept captured by Rene Eller’s subversive eye and [writer] Elvis Peeters sage mind.” – ItsBlogginEvil

Artsploitation Films Bring, “Joy…Fear…Trepidation” to Film Critic!

“Every time I see a new Artsploitation screener hit my inbox, I sequentially experience two emotions: energizing joy, and paralyzing fear. Usually then followed by trepidation (you just never know what you’re getting with these guys — which is partly what makes them so much fun).” – Jeremiah, 13thFloor

13th Floor: WE Is, “Highly Distressing and Wholly Uncomfortable”

“An unflinching look at the unfortunate machinations born of unchecked teenage angst and unbridled apathy. We utilizes the Rashomon effect to paint a mental disposition of each and every one of its misguided teenage leads. If you’re up for a well-meaning, but highly distressing (and wholly uncomfortable) coming-of-ager, one dressed in a quality production (and delivered on the back of quality performances), then give this indie adaptation a shot.” Jeremiah, 13thFloor

WE Is, “Stunning and Undeniable Harrowing” – CultMetalFlix

Unflinching in its approach, bolstered by top-notch, all-in, acting and quick to shock…We takes the viewer to plateaus they might never have imagined and may well be unprepared for…This is a stunning and undeniably harrowing, experience you have to immerse yourself.” – CultMetalFlix

WE Is a Cinematic “Gut-Punch” – ReelRenkovish

“This is not a film that is meant for sensitive viewers. But for those willing to go there, you will not come away unrewarded – even if the reward in question is a proper gut-punch and a sobering dose of reality.” – ReelRenkovish

“A Millenial Fuck-Fest” -Haddonfield Horror

“Aimless, despicable teens are nothing new in films (Kids, Thirteen or generally any Larry Clark or Harmony Korine film) but the kids in We give them all a run for their money. The entire ensemble is excellent together….A millennial fuck-fest with any thoughts of love or care kept to themselves, it is all about the instant gratification whether the poison is sex or death.” – Ryan Morrissey-Smith, HaddonfieldHorror

WE: “Smart, confrontational, well-acted and stunningly edited modern fable” – Critical Critics

“The bold debut, We‘s setup is a typical teen movie: A group of friends find a shack in the woods and use it as a base for their summer of fun. Except such fun is comprised of polyamorous sex, followed by prostitution, blackmail and death. With its disarming rawness and anything-goes attitude, We has some of the debauched energy and moral grayness of early Larry Clark, although Eller is more stylish and more arch. There are certain shades of Yann Gonzalez’s “You and the Night” in its blend of heightened drama and kinkiness run amuck, and one hardcore scene recalls Lars von Trier’s “The Idiots.” A smart, confrontational, well-acted and stunningly edited modern fable about the unleashing of the id.” – Rupert Harvey, TheCriticalCritics

“WE Hits Hard Like a Modern Day Larry Clark” – Cinapse

“Within minutes of [We’s] start the teenage ensemble is mostly naked filming their own pornography in a scheme to make some money. Soon pornography gives way to prostitution. Then makeshift abortions, horrible accidents, and untimely deaths. The film certainly has its shocking moments and they aren’t few and far between either. Fans of Larry Clark’s Kids and Bully or Harmony Korine’s Gummo will find a lot in common here in regard to both style and themes. As in those films, there’s a nihilism that’s drives the film and a sense of danger that continually builds. Even when we, as viewers, can see what’s coming next, the anticipation is horrifying and dread inducing. This may not be a life changing film for all, but it surely will be for some… It’s uncompromising and filled with complicated and confusing emotions. In the end, it all comes to a head, a catharsis that is somehow equally fulfilling and not. In the end, the films will have you wondering why and if anything in this world even matters.” Justin Harlan, Cinapse
