WING HUNT is “one of the bonafide best movies of the year” – FILMICABILITY


“The Great Chicken Wing Hunt is a movie about comradery. It is about passion, and a fine romance, and change. It is a road movie. And a cliffhanger… It has an underdog, suspense and surprises. It has fantastic music, and a camp of memorable characters. It’s about…truly philosophical discussion about the minutae of standards. And, ultimately, it’s about the establishment and recognition of the first and perhaps only de facto American food…And here’s the REALLY stupendous thing: Reynolds, who is a first-time filmmaker, uses his remarkable editorial abilities to transmit this multi-layered story in a manner of 70 short minutes.” ~Dean Treadway
