“Perhaps Dickens wouldn't recognize his characters transposed to contempo Montreal's gay-sex-for-sale scene, but his crime-infested London in “Oliver Twist” was considered pretty radical in its day.”
— David Stratton, Variety
“This “twist” on Oliver Twist is nowhere near perfect, but the empathy felt for the characters and the issues brought to light make it an interesting viewing experience that people should consider seeing.”
— Film Nerds Unite
“Twist should kickstart 24-year-old director Jacob Tierney's career straight into pole position.”
