"Lackluster though amiable...Much of it is in a showily offbeat mode that is arguably comprehensible only to its creators...Nothing is highly accomplished in terms of performance, and the narrative threads really don’t connect clearly, but there’s a warmhearted tone throughout. Philippi’s writing has a literary quality and succeeds at being vague and open to interpretation as it conveys the plot. Philippi’s direction is rather stilted and rarely achieves visual interest."

“Offers images and intriguing visual and aural juxtapositions, and lands 60 minutes later suggesting a journey of sorts, and loads of textual questions…Sections resonate but all the plot pieces don’t quite cohere…Philippi’s writing offers loads of possible meanings to most of the brief adventure. Choreographed moments are striking and worth the price of admission. The frame that holds the pieces together, however, feels jerry-rigged rather than emotionally true.”
