Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

Intermittently beautiful but frustratingly leaden, Shutterbug labors ineffectually to promote authenticity over artifice. Full Review

Ronnie Scheib, Variety

Spins experimental imagery and mystical manifestations into a gossamer-thin, ponderously off-the-wall plot. Full Review

S. James Snyder, Time Out New York

Writer-director Minos Papas channels both David Lynch and Dante's Inferno, but Shutterbug lacks the poetry -- or precision -- of a true phantasmic freak-out. Full Review

Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine

One-third lysergic plutonian tour, one-third attempted digital-art mindf---, and one-third pointlessly phantasmagoric twist thriller. Full Review

Harvey S. Karten

Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve

A photographer looks at a Dante-esque New York late at night and runs into trouble in a micro-budget movie that's more doggerel than poetry. Full Review
