November 5, 2013
Past, present, and future, and illusion and reality, dissolve as the film's scenes line up like marbles, all of equal weight and value.
October 24, 2013
The arty, poignant and thought-provoking sentimental film, about life as a never-ending journey, should appeal mostly to Ruiz's devoted fan base.

It all has a sense of regret and almost relief. It haunts.
February 12, 2013
The film's like wandering unescorted in someone else's mind ... It becomes more beautifully melancholic as you remember it.

February 5, 2013
These are the dreams of a man stepping out of this world, perhaps never more lucid and full of life.
February 5, 2013
The way Ruiz uses such giddy flourishes in the name of looking back on one's life is both thrillingly irreverent and surprisingly moving.

February 4, 2013
Playful and wildly imaginative to the last, this film shows Ruiz going out dreaming, and laughing.
February 4, 2013
Pleasurably disorienting.
January 7, 2013
Ruiz's final film is one of the cinema's grandest, most graceful farewells to life.
October 2, 2012
Across the film's second half, as is sometimes his wont, Ruiz begins to cast aside the genteel, tradition-of-quality trappings misleadingly suggested by the first act and indulges in the lurid fancy of pulp fiction and horror.

October 2, 2012
There are moments of genuine mystery in this film, which often feels as if its come to us, as Margolin put it, "from somewhere that is not this life."
May 23, 2012
A bizarre and baroque meditation on death, memory and the passage of time that ranks among the director's more cryptic works (of which there are several in his whopping 100+ feature filmography), though it does offer up a few pleasurable moments.
