  • “A love letter to cinema itself. The movie earns its length, and will fully reward anyone willing to take it on.”

    — Dan Schindel, Hyperallergic
  • “A labor of love and obsession by the Argentine filmmaker Mariano Llinás… There are touches of the playful, philosophical fantasizing of Raúl Ruiz. A touch of Buñuel. Hints of Borges and Bolaño.”

  • “Grade: A. A landmark in filmmaking.”

    — Guillermo Lopez Meza, Film Forward
  • “Extraordinary. One of contemporary cinema’s great collaborative undertakings.”

    — Jordan Cronk, Cinema Scope
  • "The mere fact of its existence is cause for amazement, but even more astonishing is the impression that it is just the tip of an iceberg—that it could keep going, a never-ending film."
