Kenneth Turan - LOS ANGELES TIMES
"One-of-a-kind... A transgenre thriller that glides effortlessly from crisp social commentary through off-kilter comedy to paranoid terror, it's on my short list of the most enjoyable movies in recent memory."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL
"It's not often a thriller keeps me wound up as well as Headhunters did. I knew I was being manipulated and didn't care. It was a pleasure to see how well it was being done."
