A wonderfully mysterious, shape-shifting feature from celebrated filmmakers Joćo Pedro Rodrigues and Joćo Rui Guerra da Mata, "The Last Time I Saw Macao" is a detective tale that blends film noir, documentary footage and personal travelogue to intoxicating effect. (c) Cinema Guild

"The Last Time I Saw Macao" is a shotgun wedding of arbitrary narrative and generally random images.
A sly, amusing if underconceptulized and needlessly elliptical inquiry into truth, memory and appearances from the Portuguese filmmakers Joćo Pedro Rodrigues and Joćo Rui Guerra da Mata.
Rodrigues and Guerra Da Mata's film is often haunting, and its portentous and mournful atmospherics ultimately help compensate for the nagging impression that it's a work almost too personal for an outside viewer to fully penetrate.
The effort is commendable and the complicated emotions of the piece (for a place and a people) come through loud and clear.
A most enriching cinematic experience that challenges you intellectually.
[A] deeply alluring contemplation of Macao as reality and myth; an investigation of the locale's past, present, and future; and a fascinating experiment in form ...
The directors build a melancholy collage of beautiful images, many of which worthy of a gallery wall, in this attempt to untwine both individual and national displaced histories.
