The doc doesn't take the time to examine why Burning Man inspires such a level of fanaticism, overshadowing human interest with a gluttony of B roll. Full Review

The New York Times
Since we can’t all attend Burning Man, we can be thankful for “Spark,” which is probably the next best thing. Full Review
Geoff Berkshire
"Spark” remains a lovingly made and shot tease, designed to ensure that what really happens at Burning Man stays at Burning Man. Full Review
Kerry Lengel
Arizona Republic
It’s a compelling topic, even if directors Steve Brown and Jessie Deeter don’t dig deeply into the cultural and psychological significance of it. Full Review
Marc Mohan
Portland Oregonian
Parts of “Spark” can seem like an ad for Burning Man, but the film digs deep enough into the pressures and challenges facing its organizers and attendees to be a worthy exploration of a unique phenomenon, even for those who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing just glitter and a thong in 110 degree heat.
