In a Slant Magazine review of Burn Country, Clayton Dillard wrote Writer-director Ian Olds has no qualms about letting the film wear its influences on its sleeve; the latter half is full-on Cormac McCarthy fan fiction, ratcheting up the story's grimy conditions and violent outbursts with nothing to show for its efforts other than an attempt at capital-I important cinema by way of association.

When you find a space like Tumblr where you can live your life online with the people who feel that same passion, you can share your fan art, you can share your silly fan fiction, just in the same breath that you share these true emotional stories about what happened when you met the band, or the moment you got the album, your reaction."

For The Guardian, Simon Usborne wrote that, for 13-year-old lip-synching (?) twins Harvey and Max Mills, Fame has started to change family life, even if the money hasn’t – yet. The boys’ PO box address receives about a dozen items a day, including chocolates, fan fiction and artwork.
