David Edelstein
As a ravishingly photographed, high-minded meditation on the potential of art and therapy to exorcise the vilest sort of psychological poison, it is positively riotous -- an Everest of idiocy. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Scholars, psychologists, and theologians can debate the point at length, but there's no doubt that Meyjes' approach is as provocative as it is controversial. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Just because people are objecting to Max for all the wrong reasons doesn't make it a good film, and it's not. It's a bizarre curiosity memorable mainly for the way it fritters away its potentially interesting subject matter via a banal script, unimpressive acting and indifferent direction. Full Review

It challenges, this nervy oddity, like modern art should. Full Review

Washington Post
Fascinating story. Full Review
