Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Little is left to chance, and every detail contributes to a tightly schematic, microcosmic poetic concept. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Mar 11, 2011

Rotten: A story in which poor real folks are granted perspective only by brushing up against starlets, accidents, and villains of the tabloid press. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Mar 8, 2011

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. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Mar 14, 2011

Fresh: Well-acted and acutely observed, the sort of cerebral fare you can more typically find on HBO than in theaters these days. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Mar 11, 2011

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.
