Suzan Pitt’s work is like a dream. Things exist out of proportion, shapes shift, characters emerge and then disappear. But like any dream, they also exist with a backbone of reality, and in every way celebrate the things that make life such a mixed bag of joy and sorrow. They are amazing works of art, and for any fan of animation or unique cinematic experiences, they are not to be missed. -Steven Snyder - TimeOut

Asparagus clearly represents a major achievement of contemporary animated cinema. It is a measure of its audacity, profound honesty, and uncompromising personal vision that it begins with an act of defecation and ends with fellacio, metaphors in this instance of spent and renewed creative impulses. -Amos Vogel - Film Comment

It’s safe to say the legendarily absurdist Luis Buñuel might have sparked to the sordid, gruesome charms of renowned animator Suzan Pitt’s short El Doctor. A trippy, magic-realist expedition through the mind of a pickled old Mexican doctor on his regret-filled last day on Earth, El Doctor makes rich use of Pitt’s hand-drawn movement technique: her squirmy human (and nonhuman) forms wiggle in the frame like a bacteria party in a festive petri dish. -Robert Abele - LA Times
