I was worried that The Projectionist would be another dirge about the end of an era, but it's Ferrara's light touch and likable subject that make it so much more.

For cinephiles, this will be effective propaganda in service of a belief they already hold, a reaffirmation of their purist convictions from a simpatico mind.

A warm and inspiring immigrant story.

Cabral bewitches and baffles with a dark story that has all the subliminal force of a recurring dream.

The Projectionist is not so much a hidden history of the movies as one that shines a light on an underground culture, fighting for survival, then and now.
