... takes you to where Tobias Schneebaum has been and in an engrossing manner lets you see why he went there.

Intriguing if somewhat leisurely documentary on anthropologist/artist Tobias Schneebaum.

The Shapiros ... ultimately reveal a frail but mentally robust old man whose gnawing hunger for knowledge led him to shun a safe, comfortable career in art for a series of radically transformative experiences at the world's edges.

An engaging testimony to the courage of one man's quest into the unknown.

Along the way, Schneebaum reverts from a lonely old man singing for his supper in the salons of New York to the adventurer he once was and apparently will always be. And this metamorphosis is the film's real discovery.

A fascinating if somewhat unfocused documentary.

There's no denying the warmth of Schneebaum's encounters, or his engaging nature. Or the fact that you've never seen a documentary quite like this one, and aren't likely to again.

The Shapiros labor under the delusion that an interesting subject automatically makes an interesting movie; their film is discursive and careless.
May 22, 2001
It's a frustrating film, asking more questions than it answers...it was very long and very unsatisfying.
