Time Out says

'What are your feelings about the broad future of the movies?' That's the poser for a couple of dozen film-makers, caught in Almereyda's pixel camera lens at the 1995 Sundance film festival. Fans of American independent cinema will enjoy this glimpse of such unlikely heroes as James Mangold, Whit Stillman and James Gray, but the endless parade of talking heads speculating rather haphazardly is of marginal interest. There's a scary double act by Nick Gomez and Abel Ferrara. Scriptwriter Larry Gross quotes Gramsci ('the pessimism of the intelligence and the optimism of the will'), but it's Todd Haynes who hits the bull's eye when he claims to be 'guardedly pessimistic'.
