"Amazing artist. Amazing director. Simply...amazing."
- William Lanier, Actor     [ IMDb ]
"... his dedication to his work was startling. He would work all hours, non-stop to stretch himself to the limit to achieve his vision. From a purely technical view of his work, he excels at keeping a story localized and concentrated, lean and mean, usually centering around one location. Eduardo has the right mixture of ambition. He aspires to perfection with all aspects of his film, yet does not yield to desires to create massive, unwieldy projects. He chooses little moments or stories he can tell in a short period of time and concentrates to make them as compelling as possible. His camera direction is first rate, very expressive and always kinetic. what's also startling is his innate understanding of music, sound, and rhythm in conjunction with the images, he manages to create and shift a mood almost at will..."
