Never settling on a consistent tone or establishing a convincing context for its central character, the movie ultimately seems to grow bored even with itself.

Writer-helmer Bruce Sweeney can't decide if the lead figure is a comic caricature or pathetic mental case; his resolution is so desultory it feels like he ceased caring.

As a filmmaker with a gift for social satire, Sweeney isn't at his best focusing almost exclusively on one character.
