Rather than deepening the mystery and sense of intoxication, the picture soon becomes one prolonged and very bad hangover.

A silly, oddly disagreeable movie.

Demonlover is so incomprehensible that you can't readily accuse it of being anything but almost unwatchable.

A tiresome exercise in self-demonization.
October 3, 2003
All about modern disconnect -- hardly an original subject -- but the film gets style points, and in-your-face points.

For an hour or so, Demonlover is an entrancingly devious soap opera of executive decadence.

September 20, 2003
The movie feels like a shambles, and yet it's a stunning example of a director in complete control of his material.
