Branagh's contemporary American accent is annoying, and the film's constant inter-cutting of past and present lives becomes laughable.

As the twists come thick and fast and the plot gets progressively more and more baroque, Branagh shows himself to be at least as intelligent as Brian De Palma in delivering over-the-top stylistic filigree.

Director and star Kenneth Branagh brings the same zest and bravura style to this actors' romp of a mystery-thriller as he did to Henry V.

Branagh's lame stab at a romantic psychological thriller makes no sense.

A big, convoluted, entertainingly dizzy romantic mystery melodrama. It's also another coup de cinema for Mr. Branagh.

A miscalculation from a prodigious talent who has forgotten that you squeeze the life out of romance when you don't give it space to breathe.

I am a particular pushover for movies like this, movies that could go on the same list with Rebecca, Wuthering Heights or Vertigo.

An achievement that rivals Hitchcock's best work and stands out as one of the most intriguing and memorable thrillers of the 1990s.

Overwrought and overly facile look at accounts payable in the afterlife.

The movie isn't just unpretentious; it's garishly, thrillingly vulgar.
