Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [A] his laborious, tonally wobbly attempt at an American crime epic. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Mar 20, 2014

Fresh: There's a heft to the proceedings that keeps us invested even when the story's various strands start to unravel. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Mar 20, 2014

Rotten: Seems to be the continuation of a narrative that only exists in its characters' heads. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, Mar 27, 2014

Fresh: Intriguing performances, and a sense of '70s American cinema that seems to have been preserved in a lava lamp. – John Anderson, Newsday, Mar 20, 2014
