Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Propelled by an eccentric cast of characters and increasingly seamy locations, Fix dashes headlong through Los Angeles with a little charm and a lot of verve."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"An energetic, handheld-camera account of a day spent trying to deposit someone in rehab."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"If any one of these actors weren't up to the task, FIX wouldn't work. Thankfully, they are real enough to want to invest in their plight."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Ruspoli's empathy for the high-and-low personalities that make up our urban web -- personified in Leo's friend-to-everyone, destructive-to-himself charm -- infuses his amped-up travelogue."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Ruspoli's scenic cross-section L.A. travelogue conveys a strong sense of milieu even as his wannabe-Strung aesthetics reveal the project's underlying style-over-substance concerns."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"An engaging work of no small charm -- and one of the few exercises in first-person narrative filmmaking I've seen that really works."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A shakey-cam odyssey across Los Angeles, from Beverly Hills to Watts, with a carload of drug dealers of convenience, in which almost nothing rings true."
‑ David Chute, L.A. Weekly
"Caffeinated travelogue Fix pulses with a brash and seductive visual style, but the human drama at the core of its premise ultimately feels a bit underdeveloped; with montages galore, Fix becomes a slave to its insistent artiness."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
