Huffington Post: Wrapping Up the Los Angeles Film Festival "Delightful, probing, insightful, and most importantly, ennobling its subjects without the least trace of condescension, Kurtz takes you on a 10 minute ride to the top of the world with men who face death on a daily basis just to feed their families...It's enough to make John Steinbeck cry."
This film is a beautifully crafted portrait of a group of men with a sense of humanity and a very unique view of the world. In 10 minutes we were drawn into a story that told us about human nature, quality of life, economics, race, the importance of family and mortality. The men may be invisible to the world rushing below them, but they see through the windows theyre washingdeep into the lives and souls of the people behind the glass. Its cinematically exquisite, with light so rich its thrilling to watch. Jurors - Brett Ratner, Susan Sarandon, James Spione, Shailene Woodley, Scooter Braun, Robert Hammond and Susan Zirinsky.
