Village Voice
A quietly impassioned, genuinely stirring indie rarity.

Four stories with automatons as important characters...The last is the most touching, but all are skillfully made.

New York Daily News
The stories are sharply written and well composed. Some are high tech on a low-tech budget, but where they find their strength -- in the emotions of their characters -- money is no object.

New York Post
If you ever wondered how robots make love, here's your chance to find out.

Entertainment Weekly
The collection can be summed up in four words I never thought I'd see together: science-fiction chamber music.

Film Threat
I was hoping to be blown away, but was left feeling much like the iPerson in the "Machine Love" segment -- kind of cold.

Variety
Greg Pak understands the short form well, mercifully avoiding blatant O'Henry twists while pulling off neat reversals of expertly set-up genre expectations.
70
Ostensibly about artificial life forms, each of these four short, expertly crafted stories offers a poignant perspective on what it means to be human.
70
The most startling aspect of Robot Stories is not the mix that the director built from spare parts left on the curb but the evolving dramatic acumen of its maker; he's a talent with a future.

Washington Post
Most of the performances are excellent. The scripts, however, are slight and unsurprising.
