What critics are saying about “A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn”
“Though Goto’s film occasionally teat-ers on the ridiculous, it is nonetheless out-standing in its field, and quite unlike any udder.” – Jasper Sharp, Midnight Eye (Full review HERE)
“if you’re looking for a truly original and unorthodox love story then this fits the bill perfectly.” - Chris Magee, J-Film Pow Wow (Full review HERE)
“To call the film twisted and leave it at that isn’t doing the picture justice. There’s more here than simple taboo busting and exploitative shock value, in fact, there’s a very effective sense of sadness and loneliness to the story that gives it a very humanitarian slant. ” - Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop! (Full review HERE)
