Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In a way, this shaggy-dog hipster road film is Frank's ultimate work -- evoking the end of the road and even the end of Endsville-but he has persevered."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"You get sweeter on Candy with every passing mile."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Ambling along like a wry, laid-back "Heart of Darkness," this likable and touching film makes good use of Frank's remarkable photographic eye and Wurlitzer's witty, acerbic, and quasi-mystical handling of myth that has served him well in his novels."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Enjoyably weird quintessential road movie."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Watching Candy Mountain, we're lulled into a mood of uncertain but pleasurable anticipation."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"This road movie in the spirit of the Beats follows Julius (O'Connor), a struggling musician and James Dean wannabe, who sets out on a mission to track down legendary guitar maker Elmore Silk."
