  • Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless.

  • There's plenty of intelligence and atmosphere in play here - Adam Newport-Berra's fluid, textured cinematography is a standout, and the performances, especially Rains' charismatic portrait of someone scarred yet innocent, are engaging.

  • The performances are first rate, particularly Rains' work in the lead role.

    Dec 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • More of an interesting thesis than a compelling drama, but it's anchored by Rains' sturdy performance as a man whose open-minded curiosity about his new home disengages his natural wariness, for both better and worse.

  • The movie - at first scrappy and strange but an increasingly tough sit as it goes - never fixes its gaze on any singularly compelling idea.

  • Rains... brings such a sense of purpose to the part that the movie never goes slack.
