  • Reception

    Critical reception for Surrender Dorothy has been mixed. The Stranger criticized the film, saying that although it "makes the most of its tiny budget" the film was ultimately "inarticulate and immature". The Philadelphia City Paper wrote that Surrender Dorothy was "not without its flaws" but was ultimately "a bold, ballsy and attention-getting debut". Total Film panned the movie, giving the DVD release two stars and calling it a "yawn fest". James Berardinelli gave the film three and a half stars, praising DiNovis's performance. The AV Club called the movie "memorable, but ... also grubby, harsh, and lacking in wit". Variety wrote that Surrender Dorothy was "disturbing, hard-edged tale of physical abuse and sexual aberration that pulls no punches" but that it was ultimately "decidedly for niche tastes". Roger Ebert selected the film for his first Overlooked Film Festival in 1999.
