- Dennis Harvey, Variety
"While hundreds of bands will be struggling to emerge from the obscurity at SXSW 2015, one set of oddballs will be celebrating a 40-year home there...the film delves deep into the apocrypha and mystery of the one-of-a-kind, dissonance-crazed band. "

- Ross Bonaime, Paste Magazine
"Top Ten List for 2014. One of the great films about the nature of love. Brilliantly employs lieder by Mozart and Beethoven - the most telling use of period performance since Straub-Huillet's 1968 CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDELENA BACH."
- James Quandt, Artforum

"Hausner reveals her strongest work yet, a droll, romantic exploration of sorts that manages to expertly blend her unique tone with exquisite digital compositions."
- Nicolas Bell, Ioncinema
