Allmusic4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "For those intimidated by the sheer number of volumes comprising Zorn's Film Works series (18 as of October 2006), this is a great place to start. The full range of Zorn's moods, colors, textures, and, of course, humor comes across in these cues".[2]
