“This is, without a doubt, my favorite 18 minutes of STIFF*
this year -- or SIFF**, for that matter. [...] I almost didn’t watch
it.  I almost fucked up big-time.  It’s the story of an inventor, a
landlord, and the world’s most charming machines.”http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Content?oid=592335

“In the glow of the morning after, this is one of the greatest
films of all-time [...] I was literally on the edge of my seat as
human nature and its accompanying foibles played out on the
screen.”http://www.kera.org/blogs/culture/2008/04/18/short-films-for-fun-and-profit/
—Manny Mendoza, KERA North Texashttp://www.kera.org/blogs/culture/2008/04/18/short-films-for-fun-and-profit/
“This was our favorite short of the night. [...] The comedic
timing was impeccable. [...] Gustav Braustache’s gadgets and
machines were all so delightful. [...] The Auto-Debilitator is
perhaps the greatest invention of all time.  My love and
devotion for Nikola Tesla have suddenly shifted towards the
brilliant Mr. Braustache.”http://filmcake.twoheadedblog.com/2008/06/13/thursday-recap/

“Gustav was certainly outstanding.  I could watch that one
several times over.  It created this wonderful, weird–yet–
entirely–believable little world.  Loved it, loved it”http://filmcake.twoheadedblog.com/2008/06/13/thursday-recap/#comments

“A wonderfully wacky short black-and-white film that no
description can do justice.”http://tampafilmfan.com/blog/2008/05/16/the-movies-at-this-years-ybor-festival-of-the-moving-imagethe-good-the-bad-and-the-incomprehensible/
