A rough-edged, soul-baring self-portrait.
Ben Kenigsberg, RogertEbert.com
One of the most candid movies of its kind.
Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage
[An] honest character study of a man struggling with guilt and anxiety. Dafoe is incredible.
Tom Bond, Little White Lies
[Tommaso] manages to feel rough and risky while somehow sensitive at the same time, like the best of them.
Eric Kohn, Indiewire
Like Pasolini, [Tommaso] shows a life that struggles to balance the fantastic possibilities of filmmaking with the day-to-day mania involved in living a fulfilled family and creative life. It is remarkable and not a little touching that Ferrara so wishes to share the torments and pleasures of his daily life he has found while striving to create greater things.
