Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Without a coherent story to hold our attention, the mood of somber, lower-depths desperation soon becomes monotonous.
Rotten: Despite numerous cutaways to juice things up, a movie that once moved becomes static and verbal in the stretch.
Rotten: Serves only to demonstrate that Fishburne, a talented, inventive actor, is, unfortunately, not ready to write and direct motion pictures.
Rotten: While the line-readings are often dead-on, Fishburne's movie suffers from the usual one-room claustrophobia and Mametian repetitions.
