"I Stand Alone is strong stuff but it's not depressing in part because Noé's filmmaking is so energetic in its calculations. The movie is a veritable sonata of social disgust in which the director underscores his explosive cuts and percussive camera moves with a noise that resounds in the brain like a cell door slamming."
- J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
"With his fist crashed through the window of our aesthetic sensibilities, the French writer-director Gaspar Noe splits the earth to unleash the hounds of hell foaming at the mouth in one man's mind. In the process, he reframes, if not redefines the psychosis of movie violence in timely apocalyptic fashion. "I Stand Alone" has the ghastly stink of a rotting corpse. You can smell the cess as clearly as you can see the blood vessels striking like lightning around the pupils of its malefactor's eyes."
- Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
"Noé's first feature bombards the audience with a vile voice-over and jarring gunshot zooms, forcing us to face the bristling hatred of one of society's ultimate outsiders. By so doing he tests his audience's moral convictions, but it's a gruelling battle. A film of alarming intensity."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out
