"The father may be more famous…. But Alejandro is not the only [Jodorowsky] wowing us with his wild imagination. The famous director’s son, Adan, has a cult following of his own." - Vogue

"The Voice Thief is a debut short recalling the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, with all the high-octane drama of a Spanish telenovela and the opulence of Pierre et Giles…. [S]trange vignettes are typical of a sexually deviant, beautifully shot film, richly saturated in color. Full of Catholic and supernatural references, The Voice Thief is an exploration of excess, the macabre and the divine, that eventually culminates in religious martyrdom." - Eclectic
