[How] well [A Glitch in the Matrix]] does might depend on your tolerance of the witnesses who eat up a majority of the run time of the doc.

Deeply cerebral and not afraid to philosophize, 'A Glitch in the Matrix' is an excellent lecture on modern existential dread.

...its strength lies precisely in the way that it neither subscribes to nor debunks any particular theory. As tends to be the case, the question is more interesting than the answer.

As a fan of The Matrix trilogy ... [A Glitch In The Matrix] is both entertaining and all-around terrifying in equal measure.

A shockingly tame approach to such existentially alarming subject matter.

It doesn't blow minds as much as it feels like a blown opportunity.

But sometimes-okay, quite regularly-one can't shake the feeling that he is done in by his own interest in paranoia. They can be closer to YouTube fan-theory videos than serious explorations.

I found it very boring and uninformative, particularly through its reliance on coincidental evidence as opposed to scientific evidence.

A Glitch in the Matrix may use simulation theory as its basis, but it's really about solipsism.

The film attempts to insulate itself from questions regarding its very existence, offering a philosophical quandary that is normally reserved for the press kit or a social issues documentary's accompanying impact campaign.

Ascher's latest documentary shines a light on the philosophical and dangerous consequences of belief in the fast-spreading theory.

Although based on an intriguing philosophical conundrum, A Glitch in the Matrix feels unreal on all fronts, poorly-researched, out of touch and vapid.

Horrifying, but also funny...

A Glitch in the Matrix feels like the worst party you've ever attended. It tackles the fascinating-and potentially dangerous-theory that we all live in a giant computer simulation. It does so in the dullest, most irresponsible ways possible.

A production where the solipsism that's being dissected didn't bleed into the filmmaking. It's the movie that our version of A Glitch in the Matrix, brainy yet immature, started out as, but somewhere along the way, this file got corrupted.

In the hands of a different filmmaker, could be engaging but one that Ascher largely fails to land. This will make you think, for a short while at least, but nothing much here will stay with you, in this reality or any other.

A nutty, interesting and eye-rolling documentary about life as a simulation featuring people on a spectrum from nerdy, quirky outsiders to the homicidally deranged.

It's really just a movie that gives a platform to several self-described video game addicts, who ramble on about how they sometimes have a hard time comprehending what's reality and what is not ... The movie is also very poorly researched.

It's a necessary adjunct to the discussion. Sometimes, way-out ideas can yield real-world harm. Now more than ever.

A Glitch in the Matrix is an engrossing feature that looks and feels unlike anything else out there in any genre or style in filmmaking.
