Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Philosophically ripe but cinematically undercooked. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Neither filtered through nor structured around another artist's work, and suffers from the lack of a unifying vision, its parts greater than the whole. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Fresh: An undeniably provocative head-trip, laced with the most spectacular lightning-storm footage I've ever seen. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The film doesn't need a narrator, since the people whose accounts we hear speak so absorbingly. All talking heads should talk so articulately. – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010
