“‘Sailboat’ has the simplicity of a child's drawing. A toy-like image of a sailboat sails without interruption on the water, to the sound of roaring waves, which seems to underline the image to the point of exaggeration, somewhat in the way a child might draw a picture of water and write word sounds on it to make it as emphatic as possible. The little image is interrupted at one point by a huge shoulder appearing briefly in the left-hand corner." - Robert Cowan, Take One

"This little Sailboat film will sail right through your gate and into your heart." - Joyce Wieland

"A day at the Beach, at the Sea, at the Sky and at the Sailboats." - Michael Snow
