Whitewash reviewed on Filmoria

“When the movie started, I immediately thought two things. First, that Thomas Haden Church has the best voice for narration of any actor of his generation. And second, the sound design in this movie is amazing.

But it also helps to break the ice, excuse the pun, and allow us to laugh immediately at the very dark humor being thrown at us.”
