"The nine-person circus is fronted by Eugene Hutz, a charismatic and photogenic character with a handlebar mustache and sordid stories to tell."

‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
"Choppy, high-energy documentary of the band's rise from a cult phenomenon to international acclaim."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times

‑ Matthew Nestel, Boxoffice Magazine
