Everything hinges on Blane’s performance. Open and emotional and in-your-face as it is, there’s more depth there than first meets the eye.
— Jennie Kermode, EYE FOR FILM, Rotten Tomato FRESH Review

Cubby feels oddly refreshing in how it breathes new life into tropes that have grown tired on comedy’s straight mainstream.
— Gay Essential (FRESH Tomato Review)
A real out there on a limb type of debut film by a young filmmaker. The story shows how under the oddest of circumstances hope is still possible to be found. Coming-of-age done differently.
— Orca Sound (FRESH Tomato Review)

FESTIVAL PROGRAMMERS’ NOTES:

Frameline:

Reeling Chicago LGBT:

“A black comedy with surprising heart, Blane’s debut heralds the arrival of a fresh talent.”

Inside Out Toronto:

"With humour that’s both gentle and acerbic, Cubby captures the difficulties, and the opportunities, that come from being a complicated person in a complicated world."

"Lovingly shot on 16mm, Cubby’s dreamy aesthetic and animated flourishes perfectly blend with hilarious and poignant moments as we follow a young queer artist’s bumpy journey to find his place in the world.”

Barcelona Mostra:

"Director and main actor Mark Blane presents with Cubby his debut feature film, both hilarious and delicate, and a great example of the most delightful independent American cinema."

Iris Prize, Cardiff:

“This no-holds-barred comedy will have you laughing and gasping in equal measure.

“QUIRK & CHARISMA”

- Film Inquiry

“Mark Blane’s debut film, renders undoubtedly, proof that he is an exciting next generation wunderkind filmmaker.

He has created an auspicious, compelling and sensitive debut.

Mark’s performance is kaleidoscopic and engrossing and Cubby is an intriguing, unexpected addition to the quirky comedy genre.
It was yummy and enjoyable.
An intersectional work!”

- Jonathan Caouette, Director of Tarnation
Cannes Queer Palm Nominee and Golden Camera Nominee
