Village Voice
Colors and angles and sound levels don't match from one cut to the next. The movie is ugly as sin to look at. But it's all intentional on the part of von Trier. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
With echoes of "Dave," in which Kevin Kline takes over for the comatose U.S. President he resembles, Kristoffer begins to feel the power given to him and to make his own decisions, leading to some hilarious situations and an unpredictable ending. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
No one is likely to rank "Boss" on the same level as his more somber and ambitious efforts, but Von Trier admirers will be pleased to discover that, even while working in a far less consequential mode than usual, the ever-uninhibited filmmaker's distinctive flair is in full force. Full Review

Variety
For all its slightness, pic is helmer's least pretentious and most sheerly enjoyable for years. Full Review
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
There's a comment in here somewhere about leadership and authorship, and it's not that we're laughing too hard to fully comprehend it. In von Trier's world, the laugh is often ON the audience, not WITH the audience. Full Review
