Plays too much like an earnest repertory-theater group going through various bizarro configurations.

A passion play that wavers between amateur-hour incompetence and an undeniable directorial vision.

Mr. Merhige's concentration, while impressive in its way, seems almost entirely self-contained, with little effort to engage an audience on even the level of myth; the film's approach is far too grotesque for that.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

If you're squeamish you should avoid this like the plague; others may find it hard to shake off the artistry and originality of this visionary effort. And if you're looking to be freaked out you shouldn't pass it up.

I have said 'I have never seen anything like it' about other films, but it has never applied to something so entirely alien as this.
