"Over the last five years, Hertzfeldt has crafted what might be the crowning achievement of modern science fiction... Each chapter only grows in scope and scale and ambition...a stirring, bleakly funny, ultimately uplifting portrait of the whole of human need and desire." - Brian Roan, The Film Stage
"Intimate-yet-epic, lovely-yet-heartbreaking, short-yet-eternal." - Will Leith, GQ
"A teasingly, risibly complicated sci-fi yarn involving sad clones and their broken back-ups vaulting across space and multiple timelines in search of emotional respite and enlightenment, identity and companionship." - Nick Bradshaw, Sight and Sound
"Frequently profound and very, very funny" - Collin Souter, RogerEbert.com
"Every second is packed to the brim with a wealth of fastidious detail and disarming charm... an inspired, hilarious story of love and perseverance pushed to the brink of the known universe and the limits of common sense." - Toussaint Egan, Polygon
