Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Do you understand why I enjoyed Modus Oprandi? You don't. Millions agree with you."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A handmade, endearingly disreputable valentine to no-budget, maximum-impact cinema, Modus Operandi is seriously seedy and truly inspired."
‑ Eric Hynes, Village Voice
"Shoots in too many directions to develop character or story."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Although the film is, by design, an unwatchable mess on one level and its one joke about 8 mm filmmaking would play better as a music video or a TV commercial, there's no denying the crazed dedication to detail."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
""Loving the Bad: An Interview with Frankie Latina and Sasha Grey on Modus Operandi""
‑ Matthew Sorrento, Bright Lights Film Journal
"Bears a greater surface resemblance to the 1960s and '70s genre films to which it pays homage than Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse did."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Modus Operandi does fall too in love with its muses to avoid some of its experimental-cum-normative conventions."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
