"The whole movie seems made of rebar."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe

‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Modern life is the gauntlet run by these characters, though the film's bizarre, fascinatingly bitter finale ponders whether survival (and assimilation) is preferable to leaving it all behind."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"A stimulating document of a city in flux."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Slant Magazine
