Critic Reviews for Consuming Spirits
Something more coherent, masterful - and oddly poignant - than it may initially seem.
"Consuming Spirits" puts a hook in you and doesn't let you off. A hook the size of a crowbar.
An ambitious animated epic that runs well over two hours and sometimes feels more like a feat than a film. Nevertheless, it's a kind of milestone in its genre.

Sullivan pulls the narrative noose tight at long last, and wraps up "Consuming Spirits'' as neatly as a Victorian novel - albeit one written by someone with an alarming affinity for the grotesque.
Audience Reviews for Consuming Spirits

Using different types of animation throughout, director Chris Sullivan is able to give off various atmospheres and allow his characters to gain some depth beyond their fragmented appearance.
