Stephen Hunter The whole thing feels messy, painful, funny and believable, just like that hideous circus known as real life.
Desson Thomson A deft, entertaining story that mixes menace with charm and satire with seriousness.
Andrew Sarris This year's most articulate statement on film about the current disillusion with politics among young people everywhere in the Western world.
David Rooney Ambling drama shows an exasperating lack of economy and a weakness for diatribe dialogue, but becomes progressively more involving after a laborious start.
Scott Foundas For a movie that cautions against the crass commercialization of countercultural iconography, The Edukators seems far less interested in changing the world than in printing up some really cool T-shirts.
Lisa Rose The film is less a bohemian thrill ride than a slow lecture.
Anthony Lane Weingartner's movie is never quite as keen-edged as it hopes or needs to be.
