Critic Reviews for Touched With Fire

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (19)

Written, directed, edited, scored, and partially lived by bipolar filmmaker Paul Dalio, this intense romantic drama solely exists to prove that his so-called "disorder" isn't a dehumanizing defect.

Dalio's script doesn't always flow as smoothly as the camera work, but an air of calm authenticity should leave audiences touched, in a good way.

February 19, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Touched With Fire" is effective in showing the intensity of a new relationship and the barriers people build up around themselves when they take on an us-against-the-world mentality.

"Touched With Fire" raises multiple topics of discussion, then avoids eye contact when it's time for the actual conversation.

February 18, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Dalio, who based the film (his directing debut) on his own struggles with bipolar disorder, establishes a gentle, honest tone that never wavers - and demonstrates a knack for vivid imagery that makes him a filmmaker to watch.
