...a sensational self-expose, in which the director presents us with any number of characters that ... reflect and represent various aspects of Todd Solondz

February 4, 2002
An inelegant combination of two unrelated shorts that falls far short of the director's previous work in terms of both thematic content and narrative strength.

[Solondz is] so interested in challenging us and offending us that he's sacrificing some of the storytelling in each of these films.

March 1, 2002
Each story on its own could have been expanded and worked into a compelling single feature, but in its current incarnation, Storytelling never quite gets over its rather lopsided conception.

Solondz may be convinced that he has something significant to say, but he isn't talking a talk that appeals to me.

Tiresome and dull, like watching someone else's 2-year-old act out for the 50th time.

Shocking only in that it reveals the filmmaker's bottomless pit of self-absorption.

It's never less than interesting, that's for sure, but I didn't like it.

June 4, 2002
The movie does such an excellent job of critiquing itself at every faltering half-step of its development that criticizing feels more like commiserating.

It's bile, pure and simple.
February 8, 2002
Feels more like an experimental project designed simply to get under viewers' skins than a finished movie.

December 19, 2010
While Solondz tries and tries hard, Storytelling fails to provide much more insight than the inside column of a torn book jacket.
September 26, 2001
Fear permeates the whole of Stortelling, Todd Solondz' oftentimes funny, yet ultimately cowardly autocritique.
