Embracing Hartley's motifs, such as the vicissitudes of fame and fate, the film is sharply uneven, meditative and touching in moments but also pretentious and overlong; it's the last decent movie Hartley has made.

Has some good acting and ideas, but Hartley doesn't seem to know how to end the thing.

The complexities and weirdness of popular culture provide the backdrop for this black comedy about creativity, politics, publishing, and mentors.

In better sync with its content, but its story, too, of an individual living in a dumpster world trying to share what he knows and make it sing, is undeniably moving.

a deft, sometimes perplexing comedy-drama that stubbornly refuses to bow to convention or to soft-sell its darker, more upsetting aspects in the name of drawing a wider audience.

I was disappointed in Hartley's most ambitious film to date; I expected more than what was delivered.
