Oddly, it's Donovan's performance here that proves the movie's weakest link, though his writing and helming tie for a close second.

Morse and Donovan hold us rapt in this clearly told tale about identity confusion.

What really matters is the interplay between two fine actors, the icy Donovan and the fiery Morse.

Both characters are riveting, and they even manage to earn most of the freight that Donovan loads onto his heavily ironic title.

An exceedingly earnest, high-minded hostage drama in which any visceral tension is secondary to topical debates by a captor and his prisoner.

Writer-director-star Martin Donovan can't connect the dots; the film is a ponderous bore.

It's no surprise that Donovan's directorial debut finds him firmly rejecting the mainstream in favor of a deliberately suffocating challenge.

The dolefully talented actor Martin Donovan wrote, directed, and stars in a pressure-cooker two-hander.

On one level, it's a dark, funny tragedy, but it's also Donovan's thesis on his own craft.

As the characters drink and drug a long night away, the film turns into a pointed examination of the many masks people don to hide their various grievances and torments.
