Critic Reviews for Starfish

If White's wild formal experimentation and narrative cul-de-sacs result in a strange identity crisis for the film - a sense that he wasn't entirely sure which movie he wanted to make - Gardner's stellar work unifies it.

An ambitious piece of science fiction that manages to keep afloat despite its attempt to juggle two vastly different storylines.
