  1. Reviewed by: Ed Halter
    A dreamlike travelogue that transforms a mundane world into something strange and new.
  2. What makes the strongest impact is the superb documentary photography and the "found" audio segments--telemarketing ads left as voice messages.
  3. Thought-provoking, but not quite as profound as it pretends to be.
  4. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    Links narrative fiction filmmaking to avant-garde with vision and authority.
  5. For all its bleakness, the movie, filmed in nearly a dozen states and in half a dozen countries, is not without a certain beauty. There is comfort to be found in blandness and homogeneity.
  6. A visually arresting cinematic essay that, unfortunately, makes its points long before its conclusion.
  7. 60
    The melancholy joke - if you can call it that - is that the pall of global mediocrity has erased national differences and turned women like Tamiko and Amanda into ghosts drifting through their own lives.
