Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is not that you disbelieve their claims; they could very well be valid. It is that they are presented so clumsily and without any outside analysis that the movie plays like a poorly produced infomercial."

‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice

‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
