Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Boe's notion of cinema as a glamorous art is apparent, but his sense of narrative mystery tends to err on the side of pretentiousness."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Like love itself, Reconstruction works on an irrational, off-kilter plane, filled with elation, regret and elusive second chances."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Toys with our feelings just enough to make us aware of ourselves but sufficiently refrains from manipulation- overload."
‑ Stina Chyn, Film Threat
"Emblematic of a new sort of filmic collage in which artificial construction is as much a featured part of the point as a means to an end."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"As heart-rendingly immediate as it is intellectually sophisticated."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"Boe can be forgiven for occasionally bringing Reconstruction ... to the brink of pretension. It's his first full- length feature, and this is the mark of a novice. He makes up for it with a natural's gift for storytelling and eye for casting."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"It manages to engage you on the literal -- the immediate story, that is -- and the abstract."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Stylish, complex and challenging, Reconstruction is a noir romance that teases the mind but leaves the emotions untouched."
‑ Matthew Leyland,
"Starts out a little like a perfume commercial - the close-ups of beautiful people and the meaningful whispers, but it quickly turns into something much more intriguing."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"Offers not much more than a snazzy-looking but ultimately empty experiment."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
"This is Boe's first full-length film, but he already works the art form like a master. He proves he understands love lost and the hungry yearning burning inside love found."
‑ Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Reconstruction works more resonantly as a cerebral exercise than an emotional voyage."
‑ Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News
"A film with some heft to it, even if it is a bit self-indulgent."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"at once a thought-provoking puzzle and a revel in the sad beauty of the emotion called love"
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"It's all confusing and made more so by Boe's overwrought narration, jerky camera movements and pointless aerial shots that turn what might have been affecting domestic drama into a soulless mind trip reminiscent of The Twilight Zone."
