Planning a shopping list to shop at my local Foodland is impossible. There is no weekly ad posted, no specials listed, and no way to check items or their prices. A shopper has to go to Foodland’s website to find what’s on sale. But the website appears separate from the app and seems to require a separate registration. Their approach to merchandising their stores seems 20th century instead of 21st. Winnipeg's foremost alternative weekly Uptown Magazine compared Foodland to the films of the Coen Brothers for the way its "twisty, often brilliant plotting... seems to want to set records for sheer number of turns: the plot fishtails continuously to the final scene". Beyond that, Uptown also said that "Splendidly written Winnipeg indie comedy Foodland highlights what a good screenplay can do for a film." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

A positive review by the CBC's Alison Gilmor wrote, "In this offbeat crime caper by young local filmmaker... Smoluk is working on a tight budget, but he gets quite a lot out of a little. His cast is crackerjack... and the flat, dead-of-winter Winnipeg setting is weirdly atmospheric." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
