Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Blindsides us with unexpected humor and sadness, and is one of the unsung treasures of recent independent filmmaking. Rated: 3.5/4 Oct 11, 2002 Full Review John Petrakis Chicago Tribune This is the debut feature for Columbia College graduate Gilio, and it shows great promise. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 10, 2002 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Merle Bertrand Film Threat By turns infuriating, charming, wistful and annoying, Kwik Stop winds up a touching, if frustrating film. Rated: 3/5 Dec 8, 2002 Full Review Jon Popick Planet S Magazine Gilio does some interesting things with his direction, but his strength comes in his very believable scripted dialogue and his acting Rated: 6/10 May 31, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews

Jackie H If you love a movie about love & relationships.? Well, I am not sure if this is it.. However, it's absolutely weird and if felt so right.. P.S. I love you Ruthie.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Audience Member I received this movie as a Netflix DVD, it was next in my queue. It kept my interest and I couldn't guess the plot or the outcome. There is very good character development, there is lots of time to get to know each person. Overall, it is a story of people trying to find their own way. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member i enjoyed the story and the odd adventure the characters have ha...it only gets better as it goes on..its deep and funny. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a good movie, and Gilio is definitely talented given that he wrote, directed, and did a great job starring in it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member i liked this one will watch it again and tell my friends to check it out Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member when the film works (i.e. rich komenich's performance as emil) it's fantastic but where it falters, such as annie's decision to help dee dee, a decision no one would even consider let alone opt for, it's borderline moronic. but on the whole it's a decent film about characters that desperately want to leave where they are but never actually get to going. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
