  • The movie's only intermittently successful at blurring the lines between art and life. But it's a sincerely felt experiment, and it has spirit.

  • The Icarus Line Must Die is not out to win any Academy Awards or achievements in filmmaking, but what we do have here is a passion project from a passionate person and Joe Cardamone's creative outlet is definitely for our enjoyment.

  • It's a compelling mood piece that thrives on the city, the people and their music, without glorifying or downplaying the troubles of any of them.
