"THIS MODERN MAN IS BEAT is an exemplary show of how to tell an intelligent, thought provoking story without pretensions.
"What kills me is I will be thinking about this story for a long time. The images of Habib and the hyenas on the TV haunt me. The story investigates the audience's reserves for love and hate and how life contradicts those reserves to a boiling point by following a seemingly unrelatable character and then flattening the audience with gradual, expertly timed revelation." Gabe DiDomenico, Talentville.com
"THIS MODERN MAN IS BEAT is one of those scripts that leaves you pleasantly surprised...brilliant, even poetic at times. It's gold. Pure gold.
"The story steadily takes us on a road that ends in a paradigm shift. We first see Habib through the eyes of a dog on the highway. The dog is a domesticated beast, right at the border between the modern world and the old world. He's part of both and none at the same time - the perfect neutral observer.
"Perfect. Just perfect. Congratulations, David. You've got yourself a masterpiece." Andrei Celmare, Talentville.com
