"Philosophical insights as well as footage of Sakamoto's far-flung field-recording trips, his love for Andrei Tarkovsky's work, and him scoring films for impulsive directors reveal an ingenious musician still questing for new ideas."
Dave Segal - THE STRANGER (SEATTLE, WA)

"[Sakamoto] is also ceaselessly interested in the possibilities of electronic music, though I have to say shots of him at the piano keyboard are more interesting than him at the computer keyboard."
Peter Bradshaw - GUARDIAN

"The result is an inspirational and deeply moving biopic that resonates long after the closing credits roll, not only because of the uncertain health of its subject, but the tragedies and joys of the human condition that give meaning to his work."
Patrick Gamble - LITTLE WHITE LIES

"A gentle, reflective portrait that seldom gets personal and yet somehow feels quite candid."
David Rooney - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
