“..the flat-out dullness of Arthur is the point of Dante Ariola's debut feature, but it's also its undoing..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]

“..is so sad that it left me depressed beyond hope. Their road trip becomes a tiresome journey of self-discovery that is more about self-avoidance, negating the fun along the way..”
