Like childhood itself, it's over before you're ready to let it go.
| Original Score: 5/5
You'll enjoy it from whatever angle you approach it, and you'll want to hand Joey a nickel so he can ride the pony one more time.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
The not-to-be-underestimated singularity of Little Fugitive is such that its legacy nearly contradicts its nature.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
This amazing little film... is one of the most painful and vivid recollections of childhood I've ever seen, easily on par with Zero for Conduct, The 400 Blows and The Butcher Boy.
A remarkable indy classic, made on a shoestring budget.

... the film runs largely on charm, but Engel's eye for people and landscape and social activity gives it a vibrancy that is still compelling.
...a charmer from another age.
| Original Score: B+
That the filmmakers were able to make "Little Fugitive" at all is kind of miraculous, but the miraculousness has its limits.
| Original Score: 3/4
An underseen indie-film landmark and an invaluable artifact of local history to boot.
Rarely has a film offered such an authentic child's-eye view of the world ...
| Original Score: 4/5
