Rating: 2/5 -- Too fragmentary and too devoted to its self-referential ethos to transcend its insular vision of rock's lunatic fringe.
New York Times
Rating: 1/4 -- Southlander does have enough energy and wit to make a solid music video. But that leaves us with about 80 minutes too many.
New York Daily News
Rating: 2/5 -- The more interested you are in seeing Beck, Orton and others -- including the late jazz luminary Billy Higgins -- outside the context of music videos, the more rewarding you'll find it. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Steve Hanft ... shot Southlander on digital video for what looks like $99.99. But who needs a big budget when you have a quirky script, an energetic cast and a soundtrack that features Union 13, the Blondes, Future Pigeon and Omega Man?
New York Post
Rating: 3/5 -- Pleasantly diverting no-budget comedy with fun cameo appearances.
Rating: 1/5 -- Seems like the product of someone who has hit the bong a few too many times.
Rating: 75/100 -- Hanft captures the goosy, roach-of-a-joint lifestyle pressed upon fledgling musicians in underground circles of L.A. and other urban blights. Full Review
A down-on-his-luck musician finds an instant ticket to fame with his Moletron keyboard, which also has the added effect of getting him the girl of his dreams (played by Brit musician Beth Orton). However, when the keyboard goes missing he must search the pages of SOUTHLANDER, an LA-based classifieds magazine. Cameos come from Beck, Elliott Smith, Ione Skye, and many more.
