September 1, 2005
A sometimes audacious, occasionally downright brilliant, always watchable work that somehow just misses being wholly successful.

Chrystal unravels a bit toward the end as it becomes more fable-like, but the performances make it worthwhile.

Respectable piece of work is reasonably involving if not compelling.

March 16, 2004
A grand story of redemption, laced with barbecued wit and slopped with intrigue.
March 3, 2004
If the as well-performed, better directed star-filled Levity is worth only 50 screens in its widest release, you'd have to think that Chrystal is headed for similar territory.

While some of the low-key atmospherics are effective, and Thornton suffers with exquisite quietude, some important scenes unfortunately are clumsily staged.

Moves at a virtually glacial pace, dramatizing its story less than entombing it...lacks the radiance it obviously aspires to.
