Empire Magazine

An uneasy film which sets the viewer up for some surprises and delivers on that promise. Let down, however, by a weak cast of unknowns.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

As it stands, liberals will feel like the butt of a politically incorrect joke, and conservatives will refuse to recognize Whiley as a kindred spirit. The apolitical will be put off by the director's arty footwork in the service of shadow-satire.

Laramie Movie Scope

Whiley Pritcher is about as pure evil as you are going to see on the screen. Ron Marquette achieves a high level of creepiness in this performance and the rest of the actors are also quite good.

[Public Access] is serious-minded and bounces around some provocative ideas, but is vague about such important matters as key story points, motivation and overriding theme.

It's engrossing, and Marquette is a genuinely scary customer, a dry-cleaned all-American sociopath.

Slow and a little smug, but the film-makers' imagination saves the day.

Upon watching Public Access, it's pretty clear why this film never went anywhere at the time it was made, even though it won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.

Austin Chronicle

Public Access is a prime example of the kind of elliptical storytelling that has become so popular these days and though it suffers some consequential narrative ambiguities, they do not mar the film's overall impact.

When it comes right down to it, though, Access isn't accessible enough, and it doesn't sprint to the finish.
