by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
1 of 4

“..needn't be uplifting or even optimistic, but it's much easier to care about a character when his existence feels less like an excuse for a punchline..”
by Calum Marsh [Slant Magazine]
2.5 of 5

“..as black comedy, the film is crude and downright sloppy when compared with the clockwork machinations of the Coen brothers' creations..”
by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times]

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :
