‹Losing It› is a subversive commentary on addiction, withdrawals, and the sweeping desperation that subsequently takes hold….The film’s fantastical imagery and erratic narrative structure effectively and uniquely convey these themes, making for a fascinating viewing experience.

‹Losing It› takes quite some risks breaking the boundaries of its format in more than one way.…The plot is dark, enigmatic and delirious. One thinks of Flight Club or Memento. In short, a real big screen experience.

The joy of Vernik’s film comes in its unpredictability as you can’t quite foretell where he’ll take you or what he’ll show you from scene to scene. Visually, the film slightly recalls the work of Watchmen Illustrator Dave Gibbons in how he bridges the splendour of science fiction with a world that feels downbeat and bleak.
