“The beauty of Tsai’s approach, a taste worth acquiring, is the way he builds empathy for his characters by pulling us into their geographic, temporal, and by extension emotional space.” -A.A. Dowd, The AV Club

“Like all of Tsai’s films, this communicates feelings of loneliness and alienation inherent to the human condition; but perhaps more than any other, it revels in the corporeality of Tsai’s performers…” -Kathy Sachs, Chicago Reader

“The movie’s two final shots… are among the most striking evocations of the quiet anguish of loneliness that any form of cinema can offer.” -Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
