A movie that doesn't always work but certainly earns high marks for weirdness.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Has its own peculiar sensibility, a sort of magical grotesqueness. . . . It's too bad that Woodley doesn't push his themes and ideas further, blurring reality and dream more profoundly.

Frank Scheck
Hollywood Reporter

For too much of the film's running time, quirkiness stands in for genuine wit, and the screenplay is most notable for its derivativeness.

Quirkiness alone can't substitute for a compelling story line, interesting themes or real characters.

Lou Lumenick

A thriller that shamelessly rummages through other movies in search of shocks.

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

This is a brave little indie film that ultimately falls short as a result of somewhat cloudy directorial vision. I like the story a lot, and Michael Pitt's… More
