Vertigo Releasing Unveil The Trailer, Poster And Photo Set For Writer/ Director Lawrence Michael Levine’s BLACK BEAR
‘A darkly playful deconstruction of the indie filmmaking process that digs into the artist-muse dynamic and the power structures in relationships, constantly teasing the viewer as to what's real and what's part of the writer character's imagination’ - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
'The film grows both somehow more feverish and believable with each twist and turn, a roar-ing good time that can't even be overshadowed by the actual beast creeping around outside' - INDIE WIRE
'Unique and unfazed, hilarious yet philosophical, "Black Bear" is the comedic form reinvented and re-conformed to mad and intoxicating ends’ - THE PLAYLIST
