Film Comment Magazine

Without succumbing to any romance about the magic of motion pictures, Hellman imbues Road to Nowhere with a haunted yet hallowed quality.

Becomes less clever the more clever it gets.

The film is a series of carefully composed, painterly tableaux that may stay in your mind long after its "story" has been forgotten.

The final scene offers clarity, at least, if not a satisfying payoff.

"The Road to Nowhere" plays like an exercise in frustrating audiences.

Combustible Celluloid

A return to form. But it still has the power to leave audiences disoriented, just as Hellman's best films Ride in the Whirlwind, The Shooting, Two-Lane Blacktop, and Cockfighter once did.

Ultimately, the film gets too clever and confusing for its own good, while the slow pacing zaps momentum from the story (and the story within the story).

St. Paul Pioneer Press

The sort of movie that goes down so many wormholes that, at the end, there's room for debate about what was real and what wasn't.

A rabbit hole of enigmatic characters and swampy motives...Shot by shot, the film has a burnished, beautiful sheen.

"Road to Nowhere" is a beautifully made, glorious mess.

A stylish, shimmering neo-noir with a multi-layered narrative for which the director's longtime collaborator Steven Gaydos has written an exceedingly elliptical and challenging script.

Chris Barsanti
Film Journal International

The first feature film from Monte Hellman in 21 years is a quirky and self-reflexive film-within-a-film mystery that whiplashes viewers with audacious inventiveness; it's both more and less than it seems.

Cult icon Hellman has no pity on the faint of heart in this complex time-warped epic of a film noir.

There are rewards to be teased out of Monte Hellman's enigmatic new picture, but you'll have to accept the title as a promise, rather than a threat.

Has a great setup but not much in the way of a payoff.

If Mr. Hellman's movie only partly fulfills its promise as a gripping neo-noir mystery, his stylistic hallmarks lend it a singularly haunting atmosphere.

Jason Heck
Kansas City Star

Part of the pleasure of the film is trying to parse the reality from the fiction as Hellman weaves everything sinuously together.

Keith Phipps
AV Club

The tone and subject at times recall David Lynch's Lost Highway and Mulholland Dr., but the approach is Hellman's own.

Movieline

Hellman's placid long shots belie the film's elaborate tease: Big, pretty swaths of film stitched into an increasingly perverse, unresolved design.
