The Changin’ Times of Ike White attempts to tell his story in all of its twists and turns. And boy are there some twists. Vernon’s film is a well told, incredibly nuanced portrait of a man that may have simply been broken by the legal system, or one who is sincerely a monstrous sociopath. It’s a truly impressive bit of investigative journalism and filmmaking.
Joshua Brunsting, CriterionCast
This is one of a kind tale you just need to see… it isn’t what you expect (it wasn’t what I expected)… One of the absolute must sees at the Camden International Festival.
Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
Here is a film about a man who changed lives and identities as often and as radically as Frank Abagnale in Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can. The documentary itself assumes a similar chameleon fluidity, beginning as a rote musical biopic before morphing into, respectively, a true crime mystery, a found footage collage, and finally a gutting meditation on healing and forgiveness.
Nathanael Hood, The Young Folks

FOCAL AWARDS: NOMINATED FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY 

A brilliant concept and so powerfully executed. Very compelling and moving,

stunning in its detail and comprehensiveness. A terrific, very humane piece of work.

 
Mick Jackson, Director of Threads
A powerful film which was devastating in every sense. The documentary was harrowing yet stylishly made. Unafraid of silence, a rare quality on TV nowadays.
 
The Daily Telegraph, Michael Hogan
Terrifying, poignant and unmissable.
 
The Guardian
All split screen and hallucinatory soundtrack - yet haunting barely covers it. Nuclear as a head trip is surely a TV first.
 
The Times
It's entirely chilling and heartbreaking. 
 
Radio Times
Fascinating and horrifying.
 
The Daily Mail
An extraordinary story...it's hard to believe.

Daniel Vernon’s film is some sort of frightening sub-species of masterpiece which plunges you into a claustrophobic world where duty, ill-temper, sacrifice and insanity grind together like bone on bone.

BAFTA AWARD WINNER FOR BREAK-THROUGH TALENT 2009

Beautifully shot, startling characters and as wonderfully odd as only our muddled little corner of the island can be.
Joe Nawaz, The Telegraph 
Daniel Vernon provides portraits of extraordinary sensitivity and clarity.
 
John Lloyd, Financial Times
There is of course something indelibly comic about the Klan, and this film was not shy about playing it up, but the viewer was left in no doubt that these people are dangerous: they’re armed to the teeth, motivated by twisted logic and chillingly indifferent to evils perpetrated by fellow racists. Timely stuff.
