Andrew Schwalm, First Person Arts Salon: 
"This extraordinary documentary is a work of philosophy and a work of art."

Steve Liggett, Artistic Director, Living Arts of Tulsa Festival: 
"The familiarity of the place was gone; nothing was left but the poetic juxtapositioning of elements of our techno-cultural world. And it was cold, yet beautiful."

Chris Sciabarra, New York University: 
"It's an entertaining and enjoyable odyssey with stunning cinematography and electronic music that will engage your senses, and thought-provoking philosophical touches that will engage your mind." 

Jarice Hansen, University of Massachusetts:
"A stunning work! The visuals, the music, the theory, all work together in a beautiful matrix of somethingness."

Cesar Saez, artist, Montreal: 
"Space Times Square offers visual and philosophical lyrics aiming at the vortex center of our culture."

Carine Krecke, artist and professor, Université de Provence 
Elisabeth Krecke, artist and professor, Université Paul Cézanne:
"What makes Vacker's approach so original and so different from the traditional (Michael Moore or Al Gore) documentary movies is that his arguments are non-ideological. The approach is artistic rather than political. Vacker's vision of the contemporary media society is so neutral, so beautifully cold, that it ends up being to some extent nihilistic. (...) We find the images very beautiful; the editing work is really excellent, so is the music. The voice of the speaker is very poetic and monotone, hypnotic almost, whatever forceful the statements that are made. The first sequences of the movie (before narration sets in) are particularly intense and enigmatic: the glimmering screen (reminiscent of Lynch), the orange coloured fields, the cars in the tunnel, racing to a vanishing point. Wonderful sequences!" 

XiaoLin Yu, Shanghai Film Academy
"Space Times Square is choreographed with brilliant footage and perfectly accompanied by cerebral electronic music. The entire work provides a nonstop program of thoughtful images, ideas, and philosophies, all combining to create a poignant message for today's society. The film is an artistic achievement that transcends culture, race, and geography to offer greater meaning for global media and regions such as China and other emerging countries."

David Allen, professor, Temple University
"There are several lines and images of sheer brilliance and it is a fabulous thought to link Sartre's Being and Nothingness to the zeros and ones of digital culture. I also thought some of the images were breath-taking and interesting chance (seeming) encounters."

Kathrin Fahlenbrach, professor, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle
"It is really great! Wonderful for teaching media philosophy."

Antonio Lopez, media educator, NYC 
"This is one of those works of art that makes me think, I wish I'd done that."

Doug Latino, Internet media executive, NYC:
"It's a fantastic film. The cinemetography is great. I especially liked the writing, it is smart, sharp, and just perfect for Times Square. Its an enchanting debut!"

Jennifer Dee Hill, writer, Dallas:
"Freakin' brilliant! I thought everything was great -- the thought-provoking narrative, the music, the cinematography."

Stacey Sullivan, student, Temple University:
"Wow, very thought-provoking! It has an almost Twilight Zone feel to it. The music fits elegantly, with amazing editing. I really liked the idea of being an individual black hole as the only way to escape mediated reality."

Tony Trovarello, comic book author, DC Comics:
"Space Times Square is a stunning film."

Susan Jacobson, professor, Temple University: 


Eric Zempol, graphic designer, Philadelphia: 
"I was mesmerized by the footage."

Jes Ayres, former student, Temple University: 
"It really is an incredibly dense piece and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. This is a film that should be viewed and contemplated by anyone exposed to media."

Daria Calvecchio, former student, Temple University: 
"Very creative and almost terrifying."

Steven Schaber, student, Temple University: 
"Amazing film prof, really ties in everything you teach -- is inspiring and mind blowing at the same time -- makes me want to use the internet, not the other way around!"

Joe Rovner 
"Space Times Square is a metaphysical tour-de-force; a cinematic wormhole tumble into deep existential thought. The film's use of the Lehman Brothers building was prescient."
