"The Vessel speaks eloquently. It's a testament to the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen."
- Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle

"As powerfully felt and gorgeously realized as anything one may see on screen this year."
- Brian Roan, The Film Stage

"Quintana's emphasis on Jungian dream logic gives his otherwise spartan parable a compelling mythic dimension. The Vessel may bring Malick to mind, but it also feels like a major work by an exciting new talent."
- Steve Abrams, Village Voice
