"Daniel is taken to meet his girlfriend's
father, setting him amidst the complicated infrastructure of a father/daughter
relationship. Superb acting highlights an evocative short story."
-Matt Groening, NW Film and Video Festival
"Matt Wilkins' "Interior Latex," a cruelly funny tale of a young man's
introduction to his girlfriend's father, reveals more about its characters
in 13 minutes than most films do in 90."

"Even funnier, because it's treading much sadder turf, is Matt Wilkins' Interior Latex,
a nearly perfect look at a young man visiting his girlfriend's dad."
-Bruce Reid, The Stranger
-Min Liao, The Stranger
-Chuck Wilson, The LA Weekly
"Matt Wilkins' "Interior Latex," a thirteen minute
tale of a philandering father, his young daughter, her new boyfriend and
dad's old flame, is a standout for the way it manages to suggest so much
about these relationships during a drunken all night party. To put it mildly,
these people don't have much of a future together; even the father-daughter
bonding shows signs of cracks.
-John Hartl, The Seattle Times
"The other award-winning short was Matt Wilkins' "Interior
Latex," a loosely structured, extremely well acted film that shows some
real potential from this Seattle-based filmmaker."
-Jeff Winograd, IndieWIRE
