"The only thing that may keep it from winning the Oscar for best documentary is that it may be totally untrue. Aside from that, it's a shoo-in." - Rob Thomas, Capital Times 

"The film is a curiosity. It's both an attempted documentary of an artistic movement and a bemused examination about why the movie failed in that mission." - David Germain,  Associated Press
