Critics’ Takes:

“Although jacked from a decades-old silent film, the aesthetics turned out to be the perfect encapsulation of the Smashing Pumpkins’ sense of grandeur; heartfelt, fantastical, overly-ambitious yet just a bit clunky in all the right places, and, of course, Billy Corgan, sky high, in the heavens with his band playing like angels behind him.” – Jonathan Bradley, Stylus

“What began as one of the world’s finest science fiction films ends as one of the world’s best date movies.” – Dan Caffrey, Consequence of Sound
