Critics reviews

Following a succession of zipless fucks in a bright and airy atmosphere at once exhilaratingly and frightfully inconsequential, Rudolph renders the L.A. of Harry Nilsson and John Lennon’s “lost weekend” as a half-dream, in a film that doesn’t conclude so much as blow away on the Santa Ana winds.
January 04, 2016
The essence of Rudolph’s art, the tension between detachment and immersion, can be glimpsed here. On the one hand, every aspect of his work reveals his desire to stand back, take the broader perspective, expose illusion; on the other, he is sympathetic to and fascinated with intransigent, untranscendent emotionality.
