“Scott Barlow’s comedy The Last Late Night featured memorable performances and sparkling dialogue, and it captured perfectly the feeling of being tempted by old friends into doing things that you know are bad for you.” – Noel Murray, Nashville Scene, 6/15/2000

“It has a smart script, some truly risky black humor, and three finely drawn lead characters. And the audience loved it. You could feel how excited people were to be seeing emerging talent. I was delighted the movie won the audience award…” – Jim Ridley, Nashville Scene, 6/15/2000

“A droll short film by Scott Barlow, the writer-director of the best feature entry in the 2000 festival, The Last Late Night. Although he doesn’t have room to develop things here, Barlow shows once again that he’s one of the most promising young filmmakers in America.  – Crazy Like the Taz is a hoot.” – Kevin Nance, Staff Writer, The Tennessean, 6/6/2001
