“It is science fiction and documentary in equal measure, equal parts contemporary and post-apocalyptic.” – Berlinale Forum
“This wordless assemblage of fixed shots is as much a museum piece as it is a strictly art-house item, inviting viewers to sit back and let the imagery consume them.” – Hollywood Reporter
