Los Angeles Times
Of the many remarks Weber makes in the course of his beautifully fashioned film, none may be more significant than his observation, "We photograph things we can never be."
The New York Times
Though undoubtedly a vanity project -- the music clearances alone must have cost much more than the film could ever hope to gross -- it functions pleasantly enough as an exercise in free association.
New York Post
Chop Suey is, in the end, as much a tease as Weber's photographs -- not much substance, but rather sweet and with style to burn.
TV Guide Magazine
Amid the clutter, Weber -- who narrates but never appears in front of the camera -- occasionally allows a glimpse into his own mind.
Chop Suey really captivates with surfaces; look away for an instant, and the spell is broken.
New Times (L.A.)
Weber uses Faye as base from which to branch out in bizarre directions.
It's a pleasing but shallow hodgepodge.
Bids to whip homoerotic iconography into something palatable for those suspicious of the cuisine.
New York Daily News
Caught with a shaky hand-held camera, this aimless diary glides indifferently along Weber's stellar collection of photos.
Time and again words fail Weber. He's a loquacious but unilluminating host.
