"For anyone with the slightest suspicion of the insidious, futile processes at work behind the
glossy facades of the world's so-called 'starchitects', a new documentary by Spanish
architect Angel Borrego Cubero makes for compulsive viewing"
The Guardian, Oliver Wainwright
Angel Borrego Cubero's wonderfully gossipy film The Competition () offers a revealing glimpse of life at a big - name practice.
ICON, Owen Pritchard
[The Competition] offers a rare and comical look at the inner workings of some of the most prestigious firms in the business and sheds light on the ways stararchitects carefully curate their public images.
Architectural Record, Laura Mirviss
"A real ethnographic piece that reveals the intricacies and processes behind the international architectural competitions"
"The film is a history lesson. And a chance to think about who and what decides how the buildings will be and what and for what buildings are needed"
El Pais, Anatxu Zabalbeascoa
