“..unwinds a narrative thread that grows increasingly tattered and flimsy..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
“..treats sketchy, moribund storytelling as divine inspiration..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
“..this offbeat effort proves more admirable for its ambition than anything else, as the uneasy mix of satire, allegory, grittiness and redemption never quite jells..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C+

“..there's a vague streak running all the way through Sympathy For Delicious..”
by Sam Adams [AV Club]
“..it is a chaotic pile-up of half-baked concepts that suggests an intellectual mosh pit..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
1.5 of 4

“..is not so much a hard-edged take on potentially sentimental material, but an odd mishmash that leads to some headscratchingly bizarre moments, while ultimately skirting incoherence of purpose..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
