The A.V. Club
"Wonderfully weird and digressive."
Film Journal International
"Like a fever dream stirred up by obsession with celebrity/wealth/pleasure/self and and taken to Wagnerian heights of mystical empowerment and excess"
"Vividly out of its mind."
""Ghostbox Cowboy@ truly defies categorization, and remains so unpredictable that no single viewing can resolve the fertile ideas it puts on the table. [This film] has cult classic written all over it."
"...a relentlessly grim, dark, bleak, terrifying phantasmagoric dystopian nightmare of a movie... This motherfuckin' movie is totally bat-shit crazy."
"Ghostbox Cowboy makes for a trippy, mind-blowing experience. [...] A pynchonian mind blowing masterpiece."
"Stylish, comic and shameless... Maringouin hasn't lost his flair for revealing the secrets of a place, even as he's bringing his own circus there. [...} A trade ware parable."
The Hollywood Reporter
"A gonzo odyssey, Maringouin makes the madness feel queasily real."
"Fascinating, atmospheric and utterly strange."
"Wild West capitalism hits the Far East with a vengeance in documentarian John Maringouin’s adventuresome first narrative feature, “Ghostbox Cowboy.”"
