V Sloveniji so vrhunski scenariji redki in scenarij za film SREČEN ZA UMRET je eden izmed teh redkih scenarijev. Škoda je le, da ni dobil priložnosti v celoti zadihati skozi film.

Svet Filma award

2008

Topla in preprosta filmska pripoved, ki nikamor ne hiti, pa vendar se ne vleče. Z vsemi odtenki sive naslika paleto osamljenosti in nas nevsiljivo potegne v film. Zrelo delo mladega avtorja Matevža Luzarja. Komaj čakamo njegove naslednje projekte in upamo, da bo debitiral s celovečercem, še predno osivi.
