The Prefab People Reeling Reviews Review of The Prefab People

Jonathan Rosenbaum of Chicago Reader argued it was "the best of his early forays into Cassavetes-style social realism." In 2003, web-based film critic Jeremy Heilman called The Prefab People the best of [Tarr's] early works because it achieves such a degree of intimacy that its lack of ostentatious filmmaking never impedes its ability to observe its characters."
