Strikingly original and spectacularly twisted, Quid Pro Quo is a gem. Two outstanding performances from Nick Stahl and Vera Farmiga provide riveting viewing

By far the movie's strong suit is Farmiga, who gives an astonishingly layered performance,

Very deftly made, with some lovely cinematography and two quirky, engaging lead performances, it's a satisfying debut.

An outsider adventure strictly for the very open-minded, presenting the numbness of paralysis, ironically, as a potential source of paroxysms of pleasure.

An obscure and terrifying mental disorder leads a reporter to the strangest and then the most terrifying story of his life. A neat film noir in a very modern setting amongst people who are not all there.

The movie exerts a certain appeal without ever being convincing.

This warped masochistic cousin to David Cronenberg's Crash - not to be confused with the Oscar winner of the same name -- is well worth seeing for Farmiga's stunning performance.

This odd little fugue of a movie would be implausible, even laughable, if it weren't also marvelously played, visually composed and plotted with the utmost cunning.

The film is lightest on its feet when it shakes off the Red Shoe Diaries foreboding for moments of sly irony

It frustratingly refuses to go bonkers, but the film is a compelling sit, brought to life by two very crafty, pointed performances.

It certainly won't be everyone's cup of breakfast bitters, but you can't dismiss it nonchalantly.

Quid Pro Quo is a respectable feature-film debut for Mr. Brooks, and it remains reasonably thought-provoking without ever becoming emotionally absorbing.

Like a fender-bender to David Cronenberg's Crash, Carlos Brooks' Quid Pro Quo is a tame, yet weird and wonderful love-letter to the walking wounded.

The first half of Quid Pro Quo is among the most jaw-dropping things I've ever seen: Who knew there was a closeted subculture of people pretending to be paraplegics?

Not exactly Bunuel's differently abled erotica classic Tristana, it raises mystifying questions about disability as a state of mind. And whether or not the final clues to this mind over matter mystery reside in sex, shoes or tulips, hypochondriacs beware.

Although not a perfect film, "Quid Pro Quo" is a highly crafted cinematic achievement that taps into its characters' subconscious with surgical precision and elegant assurance.

Has some pretty insightful things to say about the nature of being "disabled," and it says them with a good deal of humor, style, and understanding.

An exceedingly odd meeting of the minds (and bodies) occurs in Quid Pro Quo, a strikingly original and provocative first feature from scribe-helmer Carlos Brooks.
