“Few début films pack as much narrative punch and impressive technique than Jake Yuzna’s wonderfully moody story of love amongst those who feel so uncomfortable in their “God-given” skin that they embrace all modern science has to change sex, body features or both.”
James Wegg Review

“I’m hard pressed to think of another movie that’s as sensitive to the diversity of bodies and expressions of sexuality or lived experiences than Open (2010, directed by Jake Yuzna).”
   Krell Labortories

“Set among a transgender scene in Minneapolis, helmer Jake Yuzna’s interesting, low-budget feature debut, “Open” gives the old boy-meets-girl template a very 21st-century update.”
   Leslie Felperin, Variety
