It's a richer portrait than we might expect in an abysmal era of reality TV.Noel Murray AV ClubDecember 21, 2015
It's a complex portrait of class conflict, sad family legacies, and the dangerous allure of the spotlight.Moira MacDonald Seattle TimesOctober 08, 2015
Filmmakers Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel, over the film's quick 84 minutes, find some humanity and pathos in the story, which eventually takes an unexpectedly heartwarming turn.Colin Covert Minneapolis Star TribuneOctober 01, 2015
If you're in the mood for a tragicomic documentary, the startlingly original "Finders Keepers" fills the bill.Peter Keough Boston GlobeOctober 01, 2015
What starts out as a freak show ends up a poignant tale of tragedy, redemption, and the boon of taxidermy.Amy Nicholson L.A. WeeklyOctober 01, 2015

A film exploring the undoing of two men, the strange circumstances that see their lives interconnect, and the qualities we've come to value as a society.Jennie Kermode Eye for FilmFebruary 22, 2016
The film is a hodge-podge of archive clips and interview material but it just about gels and a host of smaller scale family stories round it out nicely.Don R. Lewis Flick NationDecember 21, 2015
Finders Keepers is an entertaining documentary worth your time.Dan Fienberg HitFixDecember 21, 2015
Finders Keepers has the sort of plot that no screenwriter in his or her right mind would ever dream up.Matt Brunson Creative LoafingOctober 16, 2015
