Top Ten Film of 2014
 - Jordan Hoffman

Critics Pick: A striking experiment in music and moviemaking. 

Destined for a long life in museums and history classes alike, this is cinema as art, and a classic.
 - Chuck Wilson, LA Weekly

Most of all it's a unique, highly immersing audio-visual experience that would be as at home in a museum as it is in a movie theater - and that's a first-order compliment.
 - Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
