This is a powerful and harsh film in many ways that doesn't cushion any blows - either psychological or physical. A thought provoking, intense and often shocking film.

[T]he character that Meg Ryan is playing so well here is so compelling. I think it's a wonderful performance that the movie is worth seeing for that.

The violence is pointless, the mystery too easy and the audience too apathetic.
