Blinding Light Cinema described the movie upon it's release: "Zine aesthetics are dissected, the zine network examined and participants are grilled in Marc Moscato’s rapid fire and ultra low-budget look at an uncontrolled, uncompromising and unrestrained exchange of ideas and free press which seeks, among many other things, to subvert the popular aesthetic of glossy publications and to abuse other people’s (usually corporations’) photocopiers! This wide-ranging and aesthetically exploding documentary could very well be described as a film version of a fanzine, and herein lies its appeal."
