Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Intermittently beautiful but frustratingly leaden, Shutterbug labors ineffectually to promote authenticity over artifice."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Papas makes our familiar city seem just as invitingly sinister as you once imagined it to be."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"An intriguing, elliptical and visually stylish journey into the unknown. It's a well-crafted, intelligent and unpredictable mystery that requires repeated viewings."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Spins experimental imagery and mystical manifestations into a gossamer-thin, ponderously off-the-wall plot."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"An overambitious production which, while not quite ready for primetime due to techical flaws, at least exhibits enough promise in terms of acting, plot and camera angles to make this critic curious to see Papas's next picture. Dante's Purgatory!"
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"One-third lysergic plutonian tour, one-third attempted digital-art mindf---, and one-third pointlessly phantasmagoric twist thriller."
‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
"Writer-director Minos Papas channels both David Lynch and Dante's Inferno, but Shutterbug lacks the poetry -- or precision -- of a true phantasmic freak-out."
‑ S. James Snyder, Time Out New York
"Its drowsy work and parlor tricks suck the life out of what's supposed to be a sleepless city"
‑ Matthew Nestel, Boxoffice Magazine
"A photographer looks at a Dante-esque New York late at night and runs into trouble in a micro-budget movie that's more doggerel than poetry."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
