  • This fallen "Idol" takes an early tumble and spends the rest of an unnecessary 144 minutes getting hopelessly tangled in the safety net.

  • With so much narrative uncertainty, there's no one to root for or to care about, making the confused climax an exercise in frustration.

    February 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • beautifully shot, but also bleak and brutal, unleashing an iconoclastic onslaught of grief, corruption and revenge.

    November 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Everything transpiring is outrageous only in its visceral execution since it all makes complete psychological sense in the bigger picture of their doomed, shared experience.

    July 30, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Despite its shortcomings, this is a film with quite a bit to recommend it, and it's an interesting curiosity for noir fans.

    July 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Overall, the movie tries to appear more poignant and thought-provoking than it really is, which is disappointing from a young director who has shown much promise.
