  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. A visually arresting cinematic essay that, unfortunately, makes its points long before its conclusion.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    Links narrative fiction filmmaking to avant-garde with vision and authority.
