Village Voice
A fitting 21st-century addition to the genre. The film's meager plotting and casual melancholy peg it as a modest indie, but these ingredients dovetail nicely with Zobel's bigger theme about the futility of the modern world. Full Review

I found Mr. Zobel's film touching and amusing, but it also left me a bit queasy. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
Morally ambiguous, subtly crafted, resolutely free of clich and made with almost no money, The Great World of Sound is under-the-radar independent filmmaking in the Jarmusch-Cassavetes mode, both noble and ruthless in spirit. Full Review

The joke is that the salesmen believe they're actually trying to discover talent and - like the people they're encouraging - are victims. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Enthusiastically received at Sundance, "Great World" is an intriguing look at our obsession with being successful and famous. Full Review
