Critic Reviews for Ganja & Hess

All Critics (6) experimental overlapping of dialogue, image, voiceover and music that makes you feel as if you're suffering from an awful fever dream.

(In Ganja and Hess) we get a devastating art film that raises more intriguing philosophical questions than hairs on the back of one's neck.

A meandering but stylish jumble.
