Quotes & Highlights

“Shem Bitterman’s Sensitive Skin a creepy-sexy chamber piece about ambition of all sorts in late ‘90s New York, features a bizarre love triangle as sleek and inviting as the New Order dance classic.” —Los Angeles_ Times_
“Shem Bitterman’s new drama, Sensitive Skin_, is a kind of R-rated fable dissecting the psychology of a young woman torn between two men and her camera. Gives a gutsy and unnerving performance that reverberates long after the lights go out.” —_L.A._ Weekly_
“In Shem Bittermen’s darkly comic meditation on jealousy and deceit, blood is thinner than water and nothing is more porous than the shifting waters of loyalty…in this provocative tale of the used and the users.” —Backstage West
