  • This deathly dull southern psychodrama searches for (but doesn't find) something interesting to say.

  • [A] woozy, erotic and disturbing Southern indie-gothic concoction.

  • Here is a tiresome act of self-indulgence that looks like a gussied-up film-school piece - a flatly acted pastiche southern gothic with dabs of David Lynch and early Harmony Korine.

  • Blows its chances by keeping us waiting way too long for revelations.

    Sep 1, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a tantalizing piece of slow-burn Southern Gothic that threatens to never get going, but even in its listless moments never relinquished a pervading sense of threat.

  • Buttercup Bill is not, despite, initial appearances, headed toward Twin Peaks. It's is, rather, a messed-up, highly erotically-charged two-step.
