"Precious is a film about a woman who ... what? Wants to be in a State Bank lifestyle ad or what? - You tell me. Too many Rohmer films and some kind of deep seated problem with "the feminine" makes me desperately search in this film for something other than the subject ..... Warning: Be suspicious of men with cameras and record collections instead of girlfriends! Their creative agenda is not to be trusted!"
                                                            - Vikki Riley, Super Eight, Aug 1990.

- Voted Best Super-8 Film of 1989 in Super-8 Yearbook, Feb 1990 (on 7 Top Ten lists).
