The film was mostly praised by critics with some reviewers, such as Dennis Harvey of Variety Magazine, commenting on the film; "Writer-helmer Darko Mitrevski keeps pushing the envelope... The cynical, hallucinatory, modern Pilgrim's Progress is a trip, with memorably out-there sequences sure to build a cult rep among adventuresome cineastes."
