Time Out says
It’s a nicely edited film, benefitting from the glow and neat shadows of the Californian sun and cinematographer Jonathon Cliff’s eye for transient architectural curios, which never upstages the bar-room balm provided by the indie rock soundtrack. Bissonnette’s script is a bit schematic and self-reflexive, and the gallery of lost Angelinos the pair encounter are predictably eccentric, dissolute or borderline psychopathic, but the playing of the leads and other cast is uniformly low-key, persuasive and amusing. A late, if predictable, twist and a moral reversal are as acceptable and reassuring as a ‘Welcome Home’ sign. Shame we no longer have late-night double-bills; Bissonnette’s chilled feature would work well as a droll warm-up for a Jarmusch, Bob Rafelson or early Wenders movie.
