Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Reach Me.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Richard RoeperAt times "Reach Me" is undeniably intriguing, mostly because it's just so weird and disconnected. Eventually, though, it just becomes tiresome.
Cinemalogue.com - 8/10 by Todd JorgensonThe jokes aren't funny and the earnest stabs at emotional sincerity ring false in this ensemble melodrama.
Epoch Times - 6/10 by Mark JacksonIt's 'Pulp Fiction' lite with blaxploitation aspects. Regardless, a movie about beating addictions, getting more out of life, and being a better person, is a good thing.

New York Post - 3/10 by Sara StewartThis crowd-funded — and overcrowded — collection of interwoven stories, directed by John Herzfeld, plays like an amateur-acting exercise in which each participant picks a name and a couple of defining props.
Village Voice - 3/10 by Simon AbramsA tone-deaf everything-is-connected melodrama ...
