“A mean little locked-room mystery whose political implications are more complicated even than they may appear, Henry Dunham’s The Standoff at Sparrow Creek sets members of a self-styled militia against each other, trying to figure out which one of them just initiated a war with local cops. Even without the strength of its character-actor cast, the warehouse-set drama would attract Reservoir Dogs comparisons — The characters [Dunham] draws are deliberately varied, blowing off some preconceptions viewers may have about survivalist types without stretching things for the sake of it. While some in the audience will have an idea where things should go as soon as they get a handle on the premise, Sparrow Creek avoids taking a too-easy stand, even after all the bullet casings have hit the ground.” – John DeFore / The Hollywood Reporter
