Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"More infomercial than movie, "People V. the State of Illusion" calls itself a documentary but is really a 90-minute PowerPoint presentation by motivational speaker Austin Vickers."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"None of the prison scenes ring true (though Tuttle is a somewhat intriguing actor), and they distract from the discussion brought up in the rest of the film."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"There is an intriguing message behind this film; too bad it is presented so awkwardly."
‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"What are they trying to sell me here?"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"If you can overlook its shortcomings and focus on the information it provides, you may find it enlightening."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times

‑ Brent Simon,
