"The Desert is a claustrophobic and paranoid, yet very sensuous film. With excellent cinematography, art direction, makeup and sound design, the director creates a dark, detailed and dirty world that seems entirely real yet is clearly a metaphor. The actors’ naturalistic performances make daily life in the bunker believable and Victoria Almeida fills the confined space with her effortless sex appeal." -- The Curator
