Baltimore Sun - Ann Hornaday
A thoroughly absorbing, even transfixing, journey to a future that may already be upon us.

San Francisco Chronicle - Bob Graham
Jim Jarmusch has come up with something strange and amazing.

L.A. Weekly - Ernest Hardy
Laced with brilliantly knotted ideas on race, masculinity and cults of violence.
89
Austin Chronicle - Marjorie Baumgarten
It's the kind of movie you wish you had more time to absorb and could see more than once before reviewing.

New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
Perversely funny.
