    Village Voice J. Hoberman

    An unrelentingly crass and confrontational barf bomb that makes Lars von Trier's "The Idiots" look like the philosophical experiment that it is.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    Disgusting, offensive, and utterly without merit. And, on top of that, it's boring and pretentious.

    The Hollywood Reporter Frank Scheck

    An experimental, transgressive work that pretty much fails on every level, A Hole in My Heart, depicting the efforts of a trio of amateur porn filmmakers, eventually will be considered a minor footnote to a talented director's career. In the meantime, it's the audience members that will have to suffer.

    Mr. Moodysson may believe that he can stick it to the audience politically by sticking it to his characters.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    To call Lukas Moodysson's A Hole in My Heart the feel-bad movie of the year would be an understatement -- it's the feel-sick movie of the millennium.

    Variety

    Dark, provocative and disturbing, the new film by Lukas Moodysson is definitely not for all tastes but solidifies his standing as the most interesting director working in Scandinavia today.
