Award winning director, actor and screenwriter. Directed the Indie thriller, 'How We Got Away With It.' Released May 2014 by Devolver Films.
"There’s a leanness to the narrative...an assured visual style and keen attention to what’s unspoken keep the mystery percolating. The movie...is a promising feature directing debut for Lindstrom.
The Hollywood Reporter
"...immediately impressive...a director who clearly understands visual possibilities. 'How We Got Away With It' shows great directorial promise, and we hope to see more of Lindstrom's work."
"It’s in the way that the film’s indefinite sympathies and narrative obliqueness recall Hitchcock and Haneke, respectively. It’s the sudden manner in which the film’s deliberateness and understatement give way to sickening brutality in the third act, such that it seems like a chilling plunge into gangster or horror cinema."
Andrew Wyatt, Gateway Cinephile, St. Louis Magazine
