Without question this is the worst movie I have ever seen. There is nothing entertaining in this disjointed, abstract, obtuse waste of film. There were only 3 people in the theater and 1 of them move on their part. Save your money, root canal work would be pleasure compared to this "movie"?

The New York Times
Mister Lonely, self-enclosed though it may be, nonetheless demonstrates that Mr. Korine, who showed his ability to shock and repel in earlier films, also has the power to touch, to unsettle and to charm. This is undoubtedly a small movie, but it's also more than that: it's a small, imperfect world. Full Review

While it's full of arresting, indelible images, Mr. Lonely remains mostly on the level of abstraction. You get it but you don't always feel it. Full Review

What engages us is Korine's revolutionary way of telling stories. It's as though he's downloading his dreams directly onto the screen. Full Review

Not all of the movie works - in fact, huge portions don't - but there are enough striking moments to make a lasting impact. How ironic: In this fairy-tale of arrested development, Korine has created his most mature movie yet. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
As a work of entertainment, as a cohesive narrative and as an artistic whole, there's no way to call it anything but an on-balance average effort. Yet there's nothing remotely average about the movie's warm spirit, its imaginative and arresting cinematography or its handful of unique, brilliant scenes and shrewd, bizarre performances.
