Fresh: A micro-budget indie best described as the cinematic equivalent of a modestly amusing shaggy-dog story that meanders toward a clever punchline. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Sep 25, 2014

Fresh: A trippy, occasionally hilarious and oddly poignant Americana odyssey ... – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Sep 24, 2014

Fresh: A broad and occasionally disjointed indictment of the New York art scene and horrorcore rap that leaves no broad side of a barn untargeted. – Pete Vonder Haar, Village Voice, Sep 24, 2014

Surprisingly good! Left us hoping for a sequel.

Taking Aim in Hellaware

Bilandic's movie is funny, clever and most of all smartly constructed. While it amusingly pokes fun at the NY art scene, stopping there would be far too easy.

The film’s aim extends past the art scene, straight thru the heart of the lame "artist" and finally slams into the ultimate victims: the "audience" who buys into all the fake posturing but the misguided subject of the film's artist.

It is in the casual exploitation of a group of suburbia misfits that Michael M. Bilandic's satire takes an unexpected turn. As funny as it is, the movie sheds an all too real glimpse of leftist intellectuals mistaking marginalized youth for being “lost:

It is both funny and unsettling that this seemingly the group of teens are the only people who are "aware"
