Quotes about SINNERS from The Hardwick Gazette:
"Ansari surpasses the challenging role, "Sinners" presents. Wrapped in black, shrouded, she is half buried, no arms, legs or body except being able to turn her head, roll here eyes, move her lips, grimace or laugh. Despite this, she is fully formed, strong and brilliant: she projects the gamut of human emotions. She rages against women's suppression and patriarchy, she wails, she screams, she chastises, she seduces, she loves, she brings ripples of laughter. When she talks of stones of the mind, we know these are the cultural do's and don'ts, religious constructs. She is a commanding force in her entombment. If she is going to die, the Janis Joplin refrain, "Freedom is another word for nothing else to lose." (June Cook)
