Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A voluptuous wallow in recycled psychosexual kitsch.
Fresh: A bravura exploration of fear and desire, a visual tour de force composed of cropped images, strobe cuts, bizarre psychological twists and a steamy sensuality.
Fresh: The pleasures of this gorgeous, clever, and visceral film are almost exclusively aesthetic. Those unmoved or alienated by the porn of pain may be left flopping as nervelessly as one of the movie's severed limbs.
Fresh: This is art-house horror, a pure cinema for connoisseurs, a return to late-19th-century decadence.
