“Free and intimist, sensual and cerebral, experimental and political. Dwoskin’s cinema is heir to the surrealists and Georges Bataille, to Andy Warhol and Jack Smith”

— Isabelle Régnier

“Each Dwoskin film could be described thus: a man watches a woman who returns his gaze. This arm wrestling match lasts as long as it needs, at times as soft as a caress, as intense as a demand. At times fear, rejection, wounded pride and withdrawal permeate this tense cinema paralyzed by gazes at the camera. Like at a peep show, his films watch in complete isolation. They speak to everyone’s solitude.”

— Philippe Azoury

"DYN AMO is a 'drama' exploring the distinction between a person's self and his projection of that self to others; and it's a 'horror movie' tragically suggesting how a projection can become more substantial than the self behind it. Its subjects are role-playing (especially sexual role-playing), and the masochism of playing a role that conforms to others' exploitative interests."

— Tony Rayns

“A work that leaves plenty of reason to believe that Dwoskin may one day create the cinema's first erotic masterpiece.”
