‑ Cynthia Dickison, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A penetrating, highly entertaining portrait of Lynch as an artist and single mother living through the despairing lows and exhilarating highs of filming on the subcontinent."
‑ Richard Kuipers, Variety
"An absorbing documentary chronicling the derailment of an ambitious, Bollywood-style filmmaking effort."
‑ Megan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter
"A daunting character study of an artist racked by her own insecurities, instabilities and inabilities."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"Don't expect any insight into the filmmaking process."
‑ Tal Rosenberg, Chicago Reader
