A.O. Scott reviewed Consuming Spirits for the New York Times:
At a time when animation is expected to be computer-generated, three-dimensional and relentlessly upbeat, Mr. Sullivan’s film is flat, handmade and melancholy, a dark and painful fantasy for grown-ups.
I loved it when I saw it at Tribeca earlier this year.
If Hollywood’s bloat and Oscar-chasing has you down, go check out Chris Sullivan’s excellent film. Right now it’s playing in New York but hopefully it will tour around the arthouse circuit.
If you can’t wait, check out some of Sullivan’s other work on his Vimeo page.
