It's a carefully made movie, evocatively filmed and intelligently thought out by the director and his cast.

The freely associative, poetic tone signals this isn't going to be just another grungy British pic about young malcontents and petty crime.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The voice-over is a touch pretentious and a few scenes play like acting exercises, but the film is filled with a real sense of hopeless poignancy.

Despite reams of maudlin narration, McKidd's powerful performance as a conflicted man makes this beautifully shot low-budget feature worth checking out.

The film has a poetic pulse, its ups and downs accompanied by some smartly chosen pop songs, a seductive original score and McKidd's husky voice-over narration.

Even in its most violent moments, 16 Years Of Alcohol is suffused with visual poetry.

Actually, it's Trainspotting without the predilection for 'junk' and dead babies who crawl on the ceiling.

Eventually the movie drowns in words.

David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor

The frequent narration is a nonstop string of clichés, platitudes, and truisms that should have been flung out the cutting-room window.

This Scottish memoir of inebriation and sobriety leans heavily on the hurt of booze and rarely on the high.
