      Stephen Holden New York Times If there were more experimental films as entertaining as The Decay of Fiction, Pat O'Neill's luminous Hollywood ghost story, the notion of a thriving avant-garde cinema might not be so intimidating to the moviegoing public. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 22, 2006 Full Review V.A. Musetto New York Post The Decay of Fiction is an acid trip of a movie about a piece of Los Angeles history that exists no more: the Ambassador Hotel. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 21, 2006 Full Review Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine The film's superimpositions, movie-dialogue samples, and audio-visual burps collectively suggest an acid trip. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 11, 2006 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Miss FlickChick Avant-garde filmmaker Pat O'Neill's haunting ode to pulp fiction and the now-vanished Ambassador Hotel is steeped in decaying California glamor and the ghosts of noir thrillers past. Sep 22, 2006 Full Review Brian Mckay eFilmCritic.com Neither fact nor fiction, but some strange realm between ... a marvelous premise for a short film - but as a nearly feature-length exhibit it all begins to feel like a grueling exercise Rated: 3/5 Apr 24, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
