Los Angeles neo-noir meets multiformat video grit with varying degrees of success.

Despite the fact that its style comes off as somewhat schizophrenic, Undoing is a film of remarkably direct emotions.

[Director] Lee evokes the character of his varied Los Angeles environments, even if the human element feels as if it's been done -- and undone -- before.

A smidgen of originality lies in its being a noir film with Korean characters: others nothing new, but still a watchable gangster pic.

though it's marred by way too many film school editing tricks, it's still a gripping little tale

... full of flashy visual flourishes %u2026 in fact, too full. What at first seems intriguing quickly becomes a problem, complicating an already unclear narrative.

It's arty, murkily plotted and derivative of too many other movies.

Undoing isn't a bad film; it's just not anything great or worth recommending.

Undoing, by the writer and director Chris Chan Lee, buries a potentially haunting pulp thriller beneath flashy tics.

[Director Chris Chan] Lee tries to innovate, but he relies on so many tricks -- woozy overexposures, rapid-fire slideshows -- that his movie looks like the product of a teenager playing with the camera on his new MacBook.

The film is too short because the characters just aren't sufficiently developed, but even at a scant 90 minutes, it feels way too long.
