The Sacramento Bee called Michael Maglaras a filmmaker of “Bergman-like gravitas.” His films have been described as “virtuoso filmmaking” (National Gallery of Art) “alive and fresh” (Art New England) “elegiac and insightful” (Naples Daily News) and “unforgettable” (Journal of American History).  David Berona, author of “Wordless Books” has said of “O Brother Man” --“This film is stunning” and Judith Regan of Sirius XM called it “magnificent.” A recent review in The Dartmouth said of “The Great Confusion” that “Michael Maglaras...brought the drama of the original show back to life.” He has recently been featured in a full-length interview on “Conversations from Penn State” on Public Television.
