Critic Reviews of "Waking Life"VarietyOctober 31, 2006
This inventive animated film, which takes Linklater back to his roots in Austin and Slacker, represents a summation of all the philosophical concerns that have defined him as spokesperson for Gen-X.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
The endless philosophising is a bit sophomoric and more jokes would help, but this is one of a kind that grows more absorbing the longer it runs.Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 06, 2002
For a movie heralded as the cutting edge of visual innovation, Waking Life is disappointingly dull in every other respect.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 22, 2002
If there was ever a film that made ontological exploration fun, this is it.Salon.comDecember 05, 2001
Exhilarating, transporting, funny and haunting -- and at times maddeningly heady or narcotically logy -- Waking Life doesn't compare to any other movie experience I've ever had.Miami HeraldNovember 08, 2001
An instant cult classic, one that's tailor-made for multiple viewings and bound to be popular among college students.Old School ReviewsFebruary 13, 2011
a commercial ripoff designed to confuse art-house patronsCommon Sense MediaDecember 29, 2010
Love-it-or-hate-it film best for older teens.Suite101.comNovember 22, 2010
A far-out-man poetry slam, art exhibit and imaginative philosophical discourse all at once drifts gently down a stream of consciousness until merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, "Waking Life" is but a dream. Who says existential fiction must be dreary?Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A brilliant film that provokes thought, idea, and conversations within the audience through its surreal animation and incredibly profound conversations.Film4September 09, 2008
Form and content fit perfectly: even if the highbrow babbling gets a bit much, the hypnotic animation means that there is always something to watch, like characters suddenly dissolving into smoke or spectacles expanding.eFilmCritic.comJuly 24, 2007
A true independent film that uses animation techniques to their utmost.
