    Whimsical, frequently poetic urban rhapsody buoyed by its deadpan dropout protagonists.

    Maggie Lee, Variety

    Subtle, enigmatic and captivating.

    Clarence Tsui, The Hollywood Reporter

    The director continues to adopt a minimalist aesthetic, but in places it also feels quite stylized to correspond with the film’s dream-like structure.
