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.

[Seems] like a downmarket David Lynch knockoff, right down to a mysterious glowering man who occasionally appears out of nowhere.

Rife with classic-cinema shoutouts, the film is a cutesy, toothless variation on Mulholland Drive, one whose attempts to pay tribute to movie magic are ultimately undercut by stagey aesthetics and narrative theatricality.
