"Here Was Cuba is a classy piece of work with solid appeal as both history lesson and gripping true-story thriller."
"...this is a pleasingly serious and thoughtful documentary with a handsome visual aesthetic, intercutting tinted monochrome archive clips of atomic-age devastation with poetically shot footage of contemporary Washington, Moscow and Havana."
"Production values are quite fine, especially the shooting of d.p. Kate McCullough, whose palette balances the correct doses of dread and hope in a film with just the right amount of gothic visual architecture."
"Winters makes the transition from stage to film successfully with powerful, fully rendered story which lives well beyond its running time and which marks her and cinematographer Kate McCullough (who shoots the feature in a variety of formats) as two women to watch. Snap is a brilliant debut."

"As deceptively moving as it may be, helmer Ken Wardrop’s directorial debut is also rigorously and remarkably cinematic: The colors, the placement of objects (often in pairs), and the interplay of camera angles, light and movement are all choreographed to provide fluidity from subject to subject and home to home."
"Production values, from the glowingly lit, intimately framed interviews (lensed by Kate McCullough) to the sound to Michael Fleming’s music, are tops."
