Critic Reviews of "Cashback"Ebert & RoeperJuly 31, 2007
I think this filmmaker has a future.Entertainment WeeklyJuly 25, 2007
Cashback aspires to be equal parts Volkswagen ad and Nicholson Baker's The Fermata, yet compares unfavorably to both.AV ClubJuly 21, 2007
Ellis seems to believe that artists have an enlightened sense of beauty and greater access to it than common folk. And he may be right: He's clearly mastered the skill of convincing art-school chicks to take their clothes off.ReelViewsJuly 21, 2007
Cashback is light, smart, and enjoyable, and it makes me eager to see what Ellis has planned for his next outing.Seattle TimesJuly 20, 2007
As observers we can project our own fantasies onto Ben's, and [director] Ellis enhances this dreamy effect with low-budget ingenuity, like cleverly executing location changes in the same unbroken shot.New York PostJuly 20, 2007
Imagine Kevin Smith with a background in poetry and painting instead of comic books and bestiality jokes, and you'll have an idea of what to expect from an exciting new filmmaker named Sean Ellis, whose terrific debut is called Cashback.Shadows on the WallMay 08, 2008
A little too mopey and sexist for its own good. But the cast is engaging enough to keep us interestedScreentalkJuly 28, 2007
A good writer starts with characters and plot and allows the themes to come naturally from the story. Sean Ellis' script for Cashback is all theme, and it's not that interesting a one to begin with.FilmJerk.comJuly 28, 2007
The first thing one will probably respond to, after the brief rampant nudity, is the exquisite cinematography by Angus Hudson.TV GuideJuly 20, 2007
The film lags badly in the middle; the flashbacks to Ben's childhood aren't especially interesting and the lengthy soccer sequence is sheer dead weight.Groucho ReviewsJuly 20, 2007
Cashback's eccentricity holds, but Ellis and his audience would have benefited from a clearer direction and a bit more restraint.Murphy's Movie ReviewsJuly 20, 2007
CASHBACK is a likable film that is bolstered by Ellis' terrific eye for composition.
