Never amounts to more than a flabby piece of counterculture nostalgia.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader  full review
Mr. Govenar's textbook history of the scene (from around 1957 to 1963) is twinklingly delivered by surviving former residents and scholarly chroniclers.
Nicolas Rapold, New York Times  full review
Impressionistic documentary about the temporary Parisian home of the Beat writers fails to justify its full-length running time.
Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter  full review
[Scales] new heights of inessentiality...
Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice  full review
