Slant Magazine
A playfully self-reflective rumination on what writer-director Terence Nance has described as "self-awareness through experience with love." Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Overambitiousness can turn a valentine into hot air and white noise, but it can also serve as a calling card for an artist finding his pitch—and Nance is indeed an artist, pure and simple. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
Village Voice
What saves the film—and grandly—is Nance’s wildly ambitious visual imagination. Teetering somewhere between film school precocity and impressively assured audaciousness...It’s almost hypnotic in its style and genre promiscuity. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
As a wry, knowing narrator guides us in and out of their symphonic affair, there’s no doubt the trip is worth it. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
What might have been annoyingly solipsistic proves mostly charming and poignant instead, largely thanks to Nance's cinematic ingenuity, but also because of his ability to both probe his feelings and hold them at a distance. Full Review
