Intermittently beautiful but frustratingly leaden, Shutterbug labors ineffectually to promote authenticity over artifice.

Kam Williams

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!

One-third lysergic plutonian tour, one-third attempted digital-art mindf---, and one-third pointlessly phantasmagoric twist thriller.

Ronnie Scheib

Spins experimental imagery and mystical manifestations into a gossamer-thin, ponderously off-the-wall plot.
