An intelligent and perceptive film, neither unique nor earth-shattering, but still worthwhile.

Though car chases and explosions are kept to a bare minimum here, I daresay you won't be bored.

...makes some subtle observations about insecurities and preconceptions, and the script unfolds its big twists in a way that's surprising without turning manipulative.

A noteworthy ending to Merchant's career and a solid beginning for the film careers of Terrio, Fox and Banks.

If the plot is thin, at least the characters are interesting, and the performances are consistently strong.

Amy Fox's play, with New York clichés for characters, was never going to hit, ahem, the movie heights. But cut loose in the middle of a comic-book summer, Heights is just different enough, just adult enough, to warrant a climb and a look.

The story defies the convention of its genre by actually going somewhere.

They work like little jigsaw puzzles, seducing us into the lives of characters via little slivers, then keeping us guessing about how they will collide and change one another.

Intelligent, an impressive debut for Terrio and an important step in Banks' screen career.

Jim Denault shoots New York as lovingly as Gordon Willis did in Woody Allen's Manhattan, and the rest of the movie follows in derivative, but impeccable, fashion.

Sufficiently enjoyable and intelligent to erase unpleasant memories of Merchant-Ivory's last foray into Manhattan ... it lacks the energy and vibrancy of the best films to come out of the city in the past few years.

'We don't know how to be people of passion,' [Glenn Close] exclaims to a collection of rapt acting students, early in the film. She might as well be admonishing the movie's cast.
