"A cinematic masterpiece."

— Cintra Wilson, Salon

"Visually incredible and blessed with great performances from Depp and Del Toro, this is destined for cult classic status."

— Jake Hamilton, Empire Magazine

"Gilliam captures the chaotic visions of debauchery with his trademark aplomb, bringing to life the already trippy patterns of hotel carpets and populating the dark bars of Vegas with genuinely reptilian lounge lizards."

— Joshua Klein, The A.V. Club
