Village Voice
There's something a tad disingenuous about the director's quest for meaning, as if the whole arc of the project has been contrived to adhere to a scripted template rather than to document a genuine search. Full Review

Austin Chronicle
Certainly there are filmgoers who enjoy this kind of noncommittal metaphysical quest. I am not one of them. It makes me think that the filmmaker is more interested in showing us his vacation slides instead of sharing any real insights. Full Review
Mike Hale
The New York Times
His film is no more profound than its forerunners, but it's quicker, funnier and less pretentious. Full Review
Sheri Linden
The Hollywood Reporter
If its summary approach is less than penetrating, its underlying message of tolerance and open-mindedness is commendable. Full Review
Steve Ramos
Boxoffice Magazine
More so than his other documentaries, Nygard remains in the spotlight from start to finish as he traveled across the globe to seek answers from various religious leaders. It's one thing to fail as a doc showman but by the film's end you feel like you have no answers to any of his questions. Full Review
