- Film Fervor, "Arlene Bogna", by Justin Kincaid
"[The Ballad of Snake Oil Sam] is like Mad Max meets Breaking Bad with some steampunk thrown into the mix. When I spoke to Arlene, the director/creator, I was completely taken back by her passion and her inner nerd-dom (in a very good way). She's the type of director that will blow the roof off the industry and completely reshape the way independent filmmakers see the craft. Arlene tells the story like she wants to see it and, by God, that's the Indie Spirit."
