True crime procedurals can have a certain fascination, but not when they're jumbled glimpses of what might or might not have happened involving a lot of empty people whose main claim to fame is that they're dead.

For all Wonderland's kinetic energy, the mind wanders.

Very sordid and unexpectedly dull; adults only.

This is one of those movies that leaves you feel drained, and as if you have to take a shower after.

Unwarrantedly interested in B-list celebrity-gone-to-seed.

Kilmer's persona is strong, and he brings a certain energy to the screen, but he does nothing to make John Holmes any more interesting than the dope addict of the week on 'NYPD Blue.'

Overblown, overheated, overdirected, overacted, overlong and over here, in the local bijoux.

With its mannered, hyped-up style, James Cox's second feature has absolutely nothing to say about its characters and their lamentable actions.

Although it has a delectable cast, Wonderland skims over its seedy characters to glamorize drug addiction and the role porn star John C. Holmes had in four murders.

You might actually anticipate learning something about the real JohnnyHolmes and his vocational choices. Think again.

We've frankly heard it all before.

A movie that manages to make both sex and violence dull.

Sadly Wonderland slips and clucks through its own artful delivery ultimately creating nothing more then a kinetic mess of a film with glimpses of genius

Wonderland remains too subjective and doesn't probe deep enough.

Jonesing for headlines and gossip-buzz, Wonderland is too look-Ma for its own good.

Piles on the narrative devices, sonic distortions and gritty images to the point where all you want to do is reach out and wipe away some of the mess so you can decide if there's anything worth seeing.
