"Rodrigo Moreno methodically unfurls a genius tragicomedy on the elusive nature of freedom."

— Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist

"Its airiness and emergent sense of romance make it a delightful place to get lost for a while."

— David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"The Delinquents alternatingly dares the viewer to read it as a caper flick, a moral parable, a comedy of coincidences, and an existential probe."

— Pat Brown, Slant Magazine

"Effortlessly charming and more than a little generous with its asides, The Delinquents is a film that lays out surprises and delights like a lavish feast."

— Josh Kupecki, Austin Chronicle

"The narrative, despite its crime-drama trappings, ends up as an ambling, affecting, sometimes funny exploration of what it means to live freely in the modern world."

— Zachary Barnes, Wall Street Journal

"Writer-director Rodrigo Moreno methodically unfurls a genius tragicomedy on the elusive nature of freedom: an idealized state in which, in theory, one does as one pleases at all times."

— Carlos Aguila, The Playlist

"This is a deadpan comedy which strides off down its own confident, eccentric path, and actually the whole heist trope is subverted from the outset by the purely un-tense way the robbery is shown."

— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"From unsettled beginning to wondrously open-hearted finale, 'The Delinquents' is wise enough not to offer clear or easy answers, beyond its certainty that getting lost is the only way to be found."

— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"Although it seems unimpeded and unhurried by the demands of conflict and resolution, The Delinquents is never boring or tedious. This is partly due to Moreno’s light, humorous touch when it comes to storytelling."

— Bilge Ebiri New York Magazine/Vulture

"Like its characters, Moreno’s banally surreal, madly sensible, big-little movie eschews the safe old daily grind in favor of the perilous unknown, and so, in a uniquely pleasurable way, reminds us that we too have options: Choose work, or choose the whole wide, weird world instead."

— Jessica Kiang, Variety
