Sight and Sound - 12/01/2004
"[T]he film exhibits a sci-fi sensibility rooted in Orwell, Kubrick and Kafka..."
Total Film - 01/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "Lucas' biggest set is a bare, bleached-out void, while his primary resource is sound, Walter Murch's dense multi-tracks engulfing us in an oppressive drone of voice and noise."

glad that real life is'nt like the way it is in
Mr. Lucas's film,but it was a good movie and I saw it three times and I hope that lucas will plan
