Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A poorly crafted grab-bag of ideas barely elaborated upon enough to sustain a 20-minute short."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Artful and intriguing, but ultimately difficult to connect with"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"When a movie aspires to be gay pornography but can't even manage that, well, you know you've got a bad movie."

‑ David Noh, Film Journal International

‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
