"50,000 Beds" New York Times Review by Linda Yablonsky
"Consider Megan Michalak and Sarah Sharp’s macabre homage to a short story by Flannery O’Connor, the Southern gothic writer who once lived on a Connecticut farm: Their video involves a woman with a prosthetic leg and the Bible salesman who loves it."

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/08/arts/d
Holly Willis review of Silverlake Film Festival
"In Megan Michalak’s lovely short Nightshade,a woman dangles in a room where gravity seems out of whack, floating about in her nightgown, surrounded by striped, flowery wallpaper. Michalak captures a sense of confinement and weightlessness, and poetically illustrates how we adapt to a world not quite suited to our needs."
