This is the sound of a filmmaker wrestling (transparently) with ideas, talking at but not quite down to his audience.

[An] earnest, often moving but not totally successful film.

If this disaster-packed parable often smacks of melodramatic contrivance, it does at least benefit from solid performances and direction, and a leavening line in sardonic humour.

For long stretches of this offbeat and innovative film, the viewer truly has no idea what will happen next and many reasons to care.

Even when he wasn't trying, Kasdan's camera found tragedy, as with the opening footage of Magic Johnson, filmed before anybody knew he had the AIDS virus. The filmmaker and his team have truly caught society on the verge.

It maps these dark, desperate, fearful times with comic and terrifying veracity, and holds out a glimmer of hope for the soul-searching survivors of the '90s.
