"The movie is beautiful, gorgeously shot, especially for such a micro-budget. It's a noir, it's intelligent noir. Remember in the 90s there were all those kinda smart, not jaw-dropping noir movies that were coming out in the US, like the The Last Seduction? This is like one of those." The L Magazine (click to view)
Jeff Yang for WNYC says "Nicholas Chin's gorgeous exploration of Asia's high-priced sex trade, Magazine Gap Road, show how Hong Kong's film industry is rebounding creatively after hitting rock bottom" (click to view)
Josh Chaplinsky review for TWITCH: "Surprisingly assured...Magazine Gap Road does something different...giving us a character piece that is low on action, but high in quality. It is a film about people's capacity to change and what they are willing to do to survive". (click to view)
