Mr. Showbiz
Shot on location, handheld camera, available light, no props, no music, no filters, etc. We may wonder, "What are we doing here?" But we won't look away. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Has nothing on its mind besides the squirming discomfort of its audience, the achievement of which it holds up as a brave political accomplishment. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
Tries to be daring and iconoclastic but winds up seeming as spoiled and childish as its main characters. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Von Trier's The Idiots is both lively and juvenile. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
The group's intent is not to insult those physically or mentally challenged in any manner of degree but, rather, to disturb middle-class types as much as they possibly can. Full Review
