Eliecer Gaspar’s review published on Letterboxd:
In pace with the vanguard with We Can't Go Home Again (1973), The Janitor is Nicholas Ray's metaphorical and bitter self representation in short film form. The figureheads of Cahiers and worshipers of the cult of the artist are the ones going down on Ray in the short. Ray, the marginalized filmmaker of the 70s and deposed figure of the classic period. Ray, the janitor.
