Minor Premise Reviews
Instead of inspiring curiosity about something it's so knowledgeable in, Minor Premise affirms its intellect, but keeps the viewer at a distance.
San Jose Mercury News
Unlike Nolan's emotionally deficient behemoths, Schultz's scrappy gem fires up the heart as well as the brain.
Film Freak Central
Minor Premise works through its tangle with a deft touch: one moment a romance, the next a horror movie.
Minor Premise is a film that sticks with you long after your done watching.
With gripping visuals, a capable lead performer, and an ambitious script, "Minor Premise" is as artful as it is occasionally clumsy. But in this film, much like in the average human psyche, the good just barely edges out bad.
Common Sense Media
Complex sci-fi thriller has strong language, mild violence.
San Francisco Chronicle
The premises within "The Premise" yield stories crafted with care and played-out with sincere commitment - even when it's all in the service of snide irony.
It asks us to suspend disbelief in order to work through some concepts about memory and identity that real scientists spend their lives on. Happily, it never feels like homework.
New York Times
Kristen Yoonsoo Kim
When a movie that feels this scientifically far-reaching lacks heart, the viewing experience is a dreary, soulless one.
Los Angeles Times
It's smart and engaging once it gets going and presents a tense, fun labyrinth for viewers to navigate. One just wishes the cheese at the end were more rewarding.
It's refreshing to see a science fiction thriller where the scientific method is truly a part of the story.
In Review Online
Minor Premise's gestures towards impenetrable design, too, end up blunted, as its structuring goes from outwardly rhizomatic ... to unambiguously linear.
Under the Radar
A tight, claustrophobic thriller set in mostly one location, this is one of the best new entries in sci-fi cinema we've seen over the last year.
"Minor Premise" is an original and well-crafted thriller that proves that, in the right hands, a movie about science does not have to be dull.
Hammer to Nail
With Minor Premise, Schultz has cemented himself as a sci-fi director to watch. I can only hope he doesn't let a budget destroy his creativity.
Minor Premise is sci-fi, science, horror, and fantasy. It's a heady mixture.
Moviegoing with Bill
Tricks are at play with resourceful direction and powerful performance. Deserves much merit.
Stylishly made and intellectually engaging, Minor Premise is a treat for fans of brainy sci-fi.
It is exactly the sort of thing that appeals to sci-fi fans more interested in ideas than laser fights and CGI, and suggests Schultz will be a filmmaker to watch.
Schultz demonstrates that he has much on his mind as a filmmaker and will be one to follow when the offers trickle in (which they should) after Minor Premise.
