Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I've rarely seen a film so sure of its own seriousness and profundity.
Rotten: I've never seen such a bad film so well made.
Rotten: A collage of strong scenes, dull bits, good filmmaking and a dissatisfying emotional payoff. A laudable attempt to tackle heavyweight subject-matter that ends up just being heavy weather.
Rotten: It's not what you'd call any good, but Claude Lelouch fans, say, might relish its grandiose romantic gestures in the face of all known logic.
Could Have Been Great, But...
for a movie so covered in secracy up to the release, you would hope that you wouldn't be able to figure the whole thing out 10 minutes in. Smith comes off as a pretentious actor that just wants his Oscar allready, but Dawson is fantastic. on top of everything working against it, it's incredibly depressing. this movie is a total misfire in every sense of the word, save Rosario Dawson.
This movie is very strange...
This movie was the most boring movie I've seen untill the last 10 minutes. Overall it was a desent movie but it was very boring.
