An L.A. neo-noir raised to an insufferable degree of artiness.

Sarkissian's script ... is both overwrought and undercooked.

Thanks to a lack of innovation and a tired script, writer/director Hamlet Sarkissian is about as cutting edge as the out-of-touch friend who keeps trying to tell you that Michael Jackson's latest albums are as good as his old stuff.

A film of high gloss and low substance.

An edgy thriller with its own take that took me on a road I never travelled. Ahead of the general level of the low budget-festival winning competition.

A nuanced crime film with some colorful personalities.
