It is remarkable not for its flamboyance but for its stark honesty, captivating visual flair, and a style of filmmaking that differs from anything on this side of the Pacific.

For all of its insights into the dream world of teen life, and its electronic expression through cyber culture, the film gives no quarter to anyone seeking to pull a cohesive story out of its 2 1/2-hour running time.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The gutsy film didn't help itself by making it so difficult to follow the story and by being so morose.

This movie is maddening. It conveys a simple message in a visual style that is willfully overwrought.

One thing is for sure: This movie does not tell you a whole lot about Lily Chou-Chou.

Once you get into its rhythm ... the movie becomes a heady experience.

I'm not sure All About Lily Chou-Chou made sense in my head, but it made sense in my heart.

Confusion is one of my least favourite emotions, especially when I have to put up with 146 minutes of it.

A difficult, absorbing film that manages to convey more substance despite its repetitions and inconsistencies than do most films than are far more pointed and clear.

A hypnotic cyber hymn and a cruel story of youth culture.

While the story's undeniably hard to follow, Iwai's gorgeous visuals seduce.

... captures the pain and desperation of adolescent powerlessness and humiliation with powerful intimacy...

A film that's flawed and brilliant in equal measure.

Bravura, ambitious and profoundly disturbing. It is also a daunting, demanding experience, one whose complex structure makes it a challenge to track despite literate subtitles.

At an indulgent two and a half hours, the film plays like a poetry reading that drags on too long.

One of the most haunting, viciously honest coming-of-age films in recent memory.

While this has the making of melodrama, the filmmaker cuts against this natural grain, producing a work that's more interested in asking questions than in answering them.

August 15, 2002
David Noh
Film Journal International

A woefully dull, redundant concept that bears more than a whiff of exploitation, despite Iwai's vaunted empathy.
