Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Leaves you high for at least a half hour after viewing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"(The) distributor's alternate title SOULS FOR SALE...advertises the film's sinister proceedings right from the opening credits"
‑ Shane Burridge,
"Puts to shame anything posing as serious philosophical thought in the Matrix films."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
