Critic Reviews of "Mean Dreams"New York ObserverMarch 20, 2017
Not a great film in the same vein as Badlands and Pretty Poison, but a very good one that is well worth seeing.RogerEbert.comMarch 17, 2017
One of those sparse projects where you wonder what excited the filmmakers through each stage of the production process, and why the answer to that question isn't more obvious.TheWrapMarch 16, 2017
Son Lux's percussive and atonal score combined with the kids constantly looking over their shoulders lend their escapes a sense of immediacy and danger.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 16, 2017
While the plot often travels familiar paths and even the impressive camerawork is evocative of other films, "Mean Dreams" has a few story tricks up its sleeve.New York TimesMarch 16, 2017
Nathan Morlando's "Mean Dreams" may use a time-honored premise - young lovers on the lam (see: "Badlands") - but it does so with such quiet, gently appealing assurance that it makes the template seem fresh again.Los Angeles TimesMarch 16, 2017
A beautiful, dangerous picture of rural America with echoes of Terrence Malick.The Straits Times (Singapore)April 12, 2017
The story is driven by character, not coincidence, with the bonus of Paxton giving a powerfully nasty performance as the protective dad from hell.Killer Movie ReviewsMarch 28, 2017
Paxton, in one of his last performances, is a diabolical blend of fresh-faced wholesomeness and pure evil.Film Journal InternationalMarch 27, 2017
Here comes Nathan Morlando's Mean Dreams to remind us all that things are bad in the heartland of this here good ole U.S. of A.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsMarch 26, 2017
'Mean Dreams' follows two depressed teens -- and overflows with dismal scenes. But fine acting by everyone wins us over before it's done.Kaplan vs. KaplanMarch 24, 2017
"Mean Dreams" begins with an interesting premise, infused with a few chilling scenes, but the showdown at the end of the film featuring Paxton is not as intense as the situation demands.
