"looks and feels like no other indie feature I've seen... I find fascinating that the film's free form media mixing and hallucinatory editing style..."
Matt Zoller Seitz- New York times
"perfectly captures the dementia in the context of a hallucinatory DePalma like thriller... just allowed myself to get lost in the abstract combination of sound and visuals"
Allan Richards- b-Independent.com
" able to affect me on a deeper level... different than anything I've seen lately, and in this case that's a good thing!"
Ron Bonk- Alternative Cinema
"Alexandre has a wacky twist and imagery that puts a spin on his effort... interesting, and added just the right amount of deranged highlights."
