Village Voice
[Nicholson's] clear affection for the sights and personalities that make Coney Island what it is gets in the way of a hard-hitting investigation of why it hasn't maintained its luster. Full Review
Annlee Ellingson
Los Angeles Times
Documentarian Amy Nicholson puts a human face on the deterioration of the iconic New York amusement park by focusing on the fate of her favorite ride. Full Review
Gabe Toro
The Playlist
The focus is spread too thinly on the various colorful local voices, all of whom openly campaign against Recchia’s intentions with zest and flavor. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Zipper captures the erasing of one of New York’s most unique stamps by cartoon businesspeople with dollar signs for eyeballs. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
The Zipper is a carnival ride, a tumbling cage whose screaming customers are spun around like a Ferris wheel. Full Review
