  • Summary: Dallas 362 is a gritty, semi-autobiographical portrait of the complex dynamics between friends and family. Ultimately, it is a story of the journey one man takes and the choices he must make to find his way home. (ThinkFilm)

    From the combustible opening-credits sequence, Caan displays a whip-crack sense of timing, pace, and energy that's so rare for a first-time filmmaker that it's tempting to call him a savant.

    Has a relaxed poeticism to it; it's a sweetly naive, adolescent Hemingway fantasy with a star-making performance by Shawn Hatosy and good ones from everyone else (including Caan).
  3. The actor Scott Caan makes a strong debut as a writer-director in this atmospheric character study in which he also co-stars.
  4. Mr. Caan's debut film is not quite a whole thing, but it offers up enough promising fragments to make his sophomore effort worth watching for.
  5. Clearly, Caan's major influence is Quentin Tarantino, though he manages only a weak imitation. But give him credit for casting Kelly Lynch and Jeff Goldblum and letting them go.

    Jeff Goldblum is a hoot as Hatosy's pot-smoking shrink, who also happens to be his mom's boyfriend, but Dallas 362 is basically a road movie that doesn't really go anywhere.

    At 100 minutes in running time, Dallas 362 can be called "The Amateur Hour-and-40-Minutes."
