What the Flick?! says: "It is so daring, it is so ambitious, it is so thrilling and weird and pointed and powerful. I never knew where it was going."
The New York Times says it's like "an episode of The Twilight Zone directed by Melvin Van Peebles and Ken Loach; a blaxploitation Polish sci-fi allegory from the ’70s; a puppet show produced by Kendrick Lamar and Charlie Kaufman..."
