A pretentious, unsatisfying and ultra-slow-moving thriller.

Fortunately, Turturro's subtle turn keeps our emotional connection solid even when the story skates on thin ice.

The story, in the end, is less than satisfying and, unfortunately, doesn't match the movie's eerie style.

With an elliptical style and open-ended interpretations, it is definitely not for those who like their mysteries spelled out and tied up neatly.

Turturro ... never wavers in his commitment to a role that deprives him of nearly all his actorly tools.
