About

"Using as its text Samule Beckett's NOT I, this shocking gift incorporates optically printed home movie footage and an eerily slick close-up of actress Patricia MacGeachy as she rants at lightning speed Beckett's words about home, family and the confines and alienation associated with being a woman." – Madcat Film Festival Program Notes, San Francisco, 2001
"... a 10 minute tour de force... In JUST WORDS, Bourque intercuts footage of her mother and her sisters with a peformance by actress Patricia MacGeachy of Samuel Beckett's NOT I; the result is unnerving (as all Beckett is) yet touching (as some Beckett is not)." – Jay Scott, The Globe and Mail, Toronto
