"Mark Slutsky’s five minute short film is one of the best science fiction films I’ve ever seen. It’s also easily one of the great films of the year."
— Unseen Films
"We’ve all noticed that time seems to move faster as we grow older — but what if you could build a machine that slowed time to the point of imperceptibility? In Mark Slutsky’s gorgeous new film The Decelerators, a group of people manage to do just that — and the result is almost worthy of The Twilight Zone."
"One of the most poignant media on the experience of time I’ve ever experienced."
— Fiona Duncan, Bullett Media
“It’s moody and elegant and weird, and I really enjoyed it. You will too.”
— Norm Wilner, NOW
"‘The Decelerators’ is a ephemeral film which deserves praise, balancing philosophy and great cinematography. It might be just another time-travel story, but its fleeting presence lingers on way beyond the final credits."
— Short Sighted Cinema
