Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like his role model Cassavetes, Turturro, paying tribute to his carpenter father, expresses as much affection for the craft of the actor as for the craft of the blue-collar laborer-hero who takes tremendous pride in his work and class."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Much of the film's narrative is muddled and disjointed."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
