      Andrew Sarris Observer Combines an intermittently lyrical soundtrack with a relentlessly theoretical visual style to fashion an amiable fable. Nov 25, 2003 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News While it's clear that Workman is fascinated by the subject matter, that turns out to be the primary problem: He gets so wrapped up in creating the structure that he forgets to put much of anything inside. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 21, 2003 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post Ultimately has a somewhat unfinished quality that complements the movie's themes -- and Hall's haunting performance. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 13, 2003 Full Review Marc Mohan Oregonian It's a compelling character study with the formal invention and editing acumen that are Workman's forte. Aug 13, 2004 Full Review Harry Haun Film Journal International A very sophisticated and uncommon sensibility is at work. Nov 18, 2003 Full Review David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor Content and style dovetail superbly in this offbeat drama, where images continually change in size and shape, evoking the story's message that human experience is always a pathway, not a destination. Rated: 4/4 Nov 13, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
