Press
 

"Sylvio endures a classic journey. Norman Rockwell by way of Pee Wee Herman."
- Eric Kohn, IndieWire

"The jokes are consistently inventive and the counteracting pathos on point." 
- Keith Uhlich, The Hollywood Reporter

"Sylvio is, at heart, a tale of independent artistry and its snares. The result is a generous, achingly tender comedy that offers some of the loopiest, most wondrously inventive humor..." 
-Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"Sylvio gave me belly laughs. "
-Bill Arceneaux, Film Threat
