It's original and poetic, and if you see it you will probably remember scenes from it a year from now, because it's not really like anything else.
"Footprints" looks like a Jim Jarmusch film set inside an Edward Hopper painting.
Ambitious if airlessly microcosmic.
The script's so incoherent and the acting so amateurish that it makes the worst old-time Hollywood B-flick seem like "Citizen Kane."
This often risible head-scratcher never cracks the surface of its muddled ambitions, largely wasting its iconic settings on a series of motley interactions, Tinseltown trivia and self-conscious philosophizing.
From its "once upon a time" beginning to the anticlimactic end, "Footprints" remains fatally lodged in La-La Land.
It evokes a mood of wistful sadness at lives lost to dreaming.
Mostly appealing and thought provoking adult Hollywood fairy tale.
Will it change your life? Probably not, but it will entertain, and even if you do find it eventually gets too slow for your tastes, the film at least delivers enough memorable performances for you to at least walk away with something.
A disappointing feature directoiral debut, which amounts to no more than a tiresome, shallow tour of Hollywood Boulevard.
Some filmmakers and journalists like to promote the myth of Hollywood as a wonderful, harmless dream machine but that disingenuous notion is touchingly subverted in Steven Peros' Footprints.
A Hollywood mystery tale that's in no hurry to reach its destination.
