David Edelstein
One of the most inspired cases of the medium embodying the message ever captured on celluloid. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A smart cartoon about the life of the mind. It's about the fuzzy border between dreaming and living. It's thoughtful, provocative, liberating and fun. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Intriguing, arresting, delightfully refusing to be pigeonholed. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
The effect is dazzlingly beautiful and surreal. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
An amazing thing -- a work of cinematic art in which form and structure pursues the logic-defying (parallel) subjects of dreaming and moviegoing. Full Review
