The Oregonian

La Times

...Self-assembles something profound and elegant.

Huffington Post

Plays like Scenes From a Marriage for foodies.

Village Voice

NOW, FORAGER is a creative, experimental, and heartfelt film that I enjoyed every minute of.

One of the most pungent and unself-conscious films about downward mobility.

Film Forward

Like its mushroom-hunting protagonist Cortlund and Halperin try to stick to a certain local tradition of storytelling, a lyrical form of American filmmaking, that stays connected to its cultural habitat.

De Film Krant

...Exhibits quiet strength with its visual beauty and subtle observation of both nature and people.

Meniscus

It's one of these American independents that reminded me of decades past in its simplicity and quiet nature. It doesn't aim to excite or shock, it really aims just to tell its story on its own terms.
