Leigh is effective as always, but has little to chew on; Patric has even less.

It peaks way before the movie's over. You're caught in a slow but steady decline, an unwanted comedown.

All of this is bolstered by solid performances, especially impressive since the characters are woefully underwritten.

To be really powerful or tragic they need to be a lot less hackneyed and directed with more inspiration than this merely adequate effort.

The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Head-swiveling directorial debut of Lili Fini Zanuck lays out a tough masculine scenario [based on Kim Wozencraft's book] in a way that is always emotionally riveting.

Though well-acted, well-written and well-directed, it's still an unpleasant watch that never gets beyond being routine.

Despite the false notes and grinding bleakness, the film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama.
