Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Little is left to chance, and every detail contributes to a tightly schematic, microcosmic poetic concept.
Rotten: A story in which poor real folks are granted perspective only by brushing up against starlets, accidents, and villains of the tabloid press.
Fresh: Mendelsohn's dialogue is, for the most part, as spare as poetry, and the three stories are woven together masterfully and acquire a gleaming aura that's almost pastoral.
Fresh: Well-acted and acutely observed, the sort of cerebral fare you can more typically find on HBO than in theaters these days.
Do not waste your money. This was a horrible movie about nothing. I could not wait for it to end, but kept hoping something would happen to make this worth my time.
