A sharp, smart movie peppered with A-grade performances from its B-list cast.

To the director's credit, the actors all seem responsive to his touch, giving performances that are lively and flavorsome, if not deep or unlike anything each of them has done before.

Herzfeld has a tolerable eye for filling a 'Scope frame but a tin ear when it comes to creating dialogue; these are all characters we've met before, and most even seem bored with themselves.

It's not that this is a bad, blackly comic slice-of-lowlife: It's just that you've just seen it all before.

Among the many lacking Pulp Fiction carbon copies that refuses to realize its surrealistic shortcomings. An exaggerated and aimless mess starving for attention

A sleek, amusingly nasty screen debut by a film maker whose television credits include an Amy Fisher docudrama.

This movie isn't bad for mere entertainment, but it's overshadowed by other, better movies in the same genre.

June 18, 2002
Funny, pathetic, sad, absurdist -- writer-director John Herzfeld plays it any number of ways, and makes them all work.

Herzfeld's marriage of dark humor with graphic violence isn't compatible, and his occasional moral statements about cheapened life stick out like sore thumbs.
