Los Angeles Times
Among the most sophisticated, fully realized and satisfying films of the year.

An unforgettable film.
90
L.A. Weekly
So never mind the Xmas schlock -- go treat yourself at once to this sensationally entertaining soul food.
70
Film Threat
It's quite difficult to find a character we can remotely identity with. This is frustrating because the film is so profoundly well written, acted and filmed.
63
Watching three frames at once is disconcerting at first, but eventually the experience gives the film a high-tech boost.
60
Variety
Always watchable yet ultimately self-defeating in terms of its tonal/aesthetic choices.
60
Village Voice
Cumulatively, the echo-chamber syntax achieves a kind of atonal harmony, meshing with the themes of reinvention and self-presentation: The disjunction between the panels is tantamount to the gap between image and reality.
60
The New York Times
His (Roy's) informed contempt is highly entertaining, but he neglects some of the more problematical and perhaps more illuminating aspects of his story.
60
Subtle performances and the "you are there" immediacy conferred by digital video give Roy's film the feel of a series of stolen moments.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
The technique adds little in the way of illumination and a lot in terms of inducing a migraine.
