Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune: There's something juicily amusing about the nonjudgmental way Kormakur views his characters. Read more

Elvis Mitchell, New York Times: Kormakur's need to make the picture fuller drowns it with inconsistency. Read more

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times: 101 Reykjavik sometimes seems to be drifting pointlessly, but it keeps on righting itself, with moments of humor and imagination. Read more

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times: For non-Icelandic viewers, 101 Reykjavik is ... of interest for the beautifully photographed glimpse, eccentric though it may be, into life in that little-known country. Read more

Rick Groen, Globe and Mail: Imagine, if you dare, Ingmar Bergman as a consummate slacker with a wicked sense of pop humour. Read more

F.X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly: Kormakur ... balances tones with a smooth, mature confidence. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: Uses a combination of humor, pathos, and general weirdness to good effect. Read more

Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle: Gudnason makes a delightful anti-hero, Abril is a kick in the pants and the snowy locations are nicely integrated. Read more

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star: A times as flatly deadpan as Hylner, at others as passionately eccentric as Abril's Lola, 101 Reykjavik is at least dedicatedly unexpected. Read more

Time Out: Read more

Derek Elley, Variety: Read more

Dennis Lim, Village Voice: Fulfills the basic requirements of good slacker comedy. Read more
