Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Informative but not overly academic, analytic but not overly pedantic and entertaining but not overly trivial."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Solid, if hyperactive."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Alex Shuper's wonderfully informative (if oddly titled) documentary examines editing, a central component of cinema that is often neglected or taken for granted."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times

‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Edge Codes ends on a note of speculative futurism, looking ahead to artistic avenues yet unexplored."
‑ Joshua Land, Village Voice
