Hammer to Nail
"Trust Us reveals itself to be something far more ambitious
and complex than its concert film label would imply. Maybe it’s
a result of Karpovsky’s cunning direction and creative editing,
which utilizes a split screen to formally mimic the way that TJ
and Dave separate and merge, the unknowable but pre-ordained cellular
activity of their partnership. Karpovsky’s energetic work
from behind the camera gives aesthetic life and structure to what
might otherwise seem like a second-rate way of seeing a first-rate
feat of mental agility... TJ and Dave’s remarkable give-and-take
serves as a healthy reminder of the true immediacy of creativity.
So does Karpovsky’s tricky, transcendent little movie."
