Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the cookie-cutter world of movies, it's a pleasure to come across a story you've never encountered before. Or ever will again. A film for which there can be no sequel."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"The rough-edged film gets major points for originality. But its ending utterly flames out, as if the filmmakers suddenly found they had nowhere to land, so hit the self-destruct button."
‑ Michael Ordoña, Los Angeles Times
"Caters to those with short attention spans looking for a quick laugh and the film's immediate payoff is just that, but the underlying message still holds some degree of truth."
‑ Perri Nemiroff,
"A wildly imaginative if erratically executed urban fable."
‑ Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times
"Looking as if it were devised on acid and executed on mushrooms, this imaginative debut feature from the Seattle artist and filmmaker David Russo finds meaning in cleaning and life in dead ends."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"A 90-minute exercise in heightened reality."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Russo deserves some respect for trying to spin a whole movie out of an idea as strange, inspired and possibly repulsive as the one that fuels his feature debut."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"[Director David] Russo hasn't quite mastered narrative but his compassion for the characters is genuine ..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Moves in an entirely unique direction. I love it, in all its sick, twisted glory."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
