Praise for Unbroken Glass:
- RogerEbert.com: "Dinesh Das Sabu is a person with a special story to tell, a story that proves worth experiencing through his reflective, heartfelt filmmaking." –Nick Allen
- Cine-List: "A painstakingly intimate documentary...Its unpolished aesthetic befits the film’s informal approach, both of which are aspects of the film that set it apart from the profusion of overly slick and lumberingly personal documentaries that pervade film festivals and streaming queues alike."
- NewCity Film Top 5 List: "A compelling personal mosaic." –Ray Pride
- WGN's The Download: "Intense and impressive...a powerful documentary." –Justin Kaufmann
- ChicagoNow: "A powerful, personal story" –Joel Wicklund
- Ian Simmons, Kicking the Seat: This alternately heartfelt and shocking cinematic journey delves into schizophrenia, cultural identity; and the realization that our parents were people before we entered the picture.
