Time Out

Apparently made for 3,000, Welsford's well-mounted debut delivers ambiguity in spades - perhaps too many spades.

Observer (UK)

Jetsam remains something washed up on the beach, a confused, commonplace industrial espionage story. But there is real promise here.

Peter Bradshaw

British director Simon Welsford's flawed movie has intriguing ideas and a great opening, but never comes together into a plausible fiction.

Joe Leydon

Pic can be read as a cautionary fable directed at those who put too much of themselves into their work.

Jon Fortgang

A skilfully written and deftly controlled thriller that refuses to be bound by budget limitations, Jetsam marks Simon Welsford out as a potentially significant new director.
