Acclaim for THE INSTRUMENT...

Slyly ambitious....'The Instrument,' though, surprises most for eschewing any genre tack whatsoever....The students concoct a series of music-based rites that become increasingly compelling to watch.

Finally, and damn near unclassifiably, comes Adam Nemett’s THE INSTRUMENT, an engaging shaggy-dog story….The music, costumes, art direction and personalities-in-formation that contribute to this lively exercise in art and/or gestalt therapy provide a potent draft of vicarious pleasure.

This is a film to watch out for…extremely artistic, quirky and fascinating. The ensemble was very well cast and engaging....Daringly explores metaphysical themes through the construct of a game which includes music, ritual, emotional interactions, and artistic expression. Best were the natural and refreshing moments of humor. This is a unique film from a filmmaker we all need to watch.
