Head-swiveling directorial debut of Lili Fini Zanuck lays out a tough masculine scenario [based on Kim Wozencraft's book] in a way that is always emotionally riveting.

Leigh is effective as always, but has little to chew on; Patric has even less.

Zanuck's debut feature fails to keep its dramatic sightlines clear.

Mr. Patric and Ms. Leigh are able to make Jim and Kristen as grimly memorable as the drug culture that threatens to engulf them both.

Despite the false notes and grinding bleakness, the film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama.

The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

It peaks way before the movie's over. You're caught in a slow but steady decline, an unwanted comedown.

It's a tough movie, scathingly violent, intense and emotionally raw; like a swaggering bar brawler, it never backs down an inch.
