Quotes

Sprinter is Jamaica’s energetic, emotional, and endearing return to the world cinema stage.

- BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE

…Saulter, who serves as his own director of photography, has a poet’s eye for detail, capturing the beauty of his native country, even in its most extreme poverty. The movie’s title, a message of hope for the future, could easily apply to the filmmaker as well.

- LA TIMES | Glenn Whipp

  There are some films that mesmerize like a slowly burning fire. The embers, glowing shades of red, gold and orange, mixed with smoky black, pop and explode unexpectedly, and the sparks keep the onlooker from getting too close. That is exactly the feeling that is evoked in the new film by Storm Saulter called Better Mus’ Come.
