"There is much to like about how Kicklighter approaches the filming of A Few Things About Cancer, but mostly it comes down to his ability to capture both the intimacy and personal nature of the story and his awareness that there's universal messages about hope and perseverance unfolding here." - Richard Propes, The Independent Critic (http://theindependentcritic.com/a_few...)

"A remarkable achievement of 'A Few Things About Cancer,' which is stuffed with some great achievements, is it's ability to tell a story we've all heard, yet keep it fresh and emotionally connected. " - IndyRed (http://www.indyred.com/a-few-things-a...)

"The camera transfixes a single shot held by one of the family members or even his crew from tons of collected footage, sewn together into a seamless blanket covering the illness and recovery of one patient during seven rounds of chemotherapy spanning two-week intervals. Whether a scene is shot by Kicklighter's crew, Caleb's mom, his wife Jada, or even Caleb himself, we see the highs and lows of the treatment, medication, surgery, and all of the solipsistic hours in between. Mock's role as husband, son, and patient, and friend are shored up into a short documentary package intended to humanize the reality of facing mortality at such a young age." - Reap Mediazine (http://reapmediazine.com/index.php?op...)
