    • “a weird reflection of current reality. . . an odd example of artsy obscura . . .an experience not quickly forgotten.”- Tor.com

    • “Zenith at top of its game.”- Boston Herald

    • “a high-concept, brave-new-world sci-fi puzzle… echoes futuristic thrillers such as 12 Monkeys and Children of Men… an atmosphere of mounting paranoia that’s grim and chilling.”- Loren King, Boston Globe

    • “a brooding science-fiction trip…Nikolic’s lust for paranoid desperation is powerful, and his way with actors is stunningly graceful.”- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

    • “rank[s] up there with indie mind-bending powerhouses like Primer and Being John Malkovich… like all great science fiction, Zenith hits us with a powerful series of “what ifs” that take the world as we expect it to be and give it a short, sharp turn on its ear… smart sci-fi… something to add to your must-see list.”- Apex Magazine

    • “a brain-bending 12 Monkeys vibe.”- Devin O'Leary, Albuquerque Alibi
