The A.V. Club
From the combustible opening-credits sequence, Caan displays a whip-crack sense of timing, pace, and energy that's so rare for a first-time filmmaker that it's tempting to call him a savant.
70
Variety
Has a relaxed poeticism to it; it's a sweetly naive, adolescent Hemingway fantasy with a star-making performance by Shawn Hatosy and good ones from everyone else (including Caan).
67
The actor Scott Caan makes a strong debut as a writer-director in this atmospheric character study in which he also co-stars.
60
The New York Times
Mr. Caan's debut film is not quite a whole thing, but it offers up enough promising fragments to make his sophomore effort worth watching for.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
Scott Caan, who delivers a derivative but extremely well acted drama.
50
New York Daily News
Clearly, Caan's major influence is Quentin Tarantino, though he manages only a weak imitation. But give him credit for casting Kelly Lynch and Jeff Goldblum and letting them go.
50
New York Post
Jeff Goldblum is a hoot as Hatosy's pot-smoking shrink, who also happens to be his mom's boyfriend, but Dallas 362 is basically a road movie that doesn't really go anywhere.
40
As a director (Caan) occasionally falls prey to the rookie mistake of excessive crosscutting, fragmenting the dramatic momentum created by his fine cast.
10
At 100 minutes in running time, Dallas 362 can be called "The Amateur Hour-and-40-Minutes."
