The South by Southwest premiere yielded mixed reactions. Dennis Harvey of Variety noted that, despite featuring few locations, the film "doesn"?t suffer from staginess or claustrophobia", though he pined for "more insight into the protagonists"? family, friends and community."

Trace Thurman of Bloody Disgusting singled out James Caan, saying that he delivered "an understated performance with extremely minimal dialogue." Likewise, Michael Roffman of Consequence of Sound praised Caan's performance, but felt that it was lost in "erratic sequencing."
