It never fully convinces in terms of either period or plot.

Even though the plot is propelled by lust and vengeance, there's no heat in the movie.

The Coen Brothers certainly know noir. This mob tale shimmers with sparkling dialogue.
| Original Score: 5/5

A screenplay of pure gold. I still think it's the best Coens film yet.
| Original Score: 5/5

...joke-heavy and bullet-riddled and studded with some of the most crackling dialogue heard since 'The Front Page.'
| Original Score: 5/5

A gleeful riff on a very old genre; the Coens make it sing anew with wit, intensity, and irresistible black humor.
| Original Score: 5/5

[The Coen brothers'] most complicated and dense movie.

The Coens play this icy gangster tale mostly straight, but they can't help throwing in a few of their dark, comic explosions; it's one of their best, most cohesive films and it holds up to repeated viewings.

Substance is here in spades, along with the twisted, brilliantly controlled style on which filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen made a name.
Christopher Null

As for that story, it's good enough, but honestly I fail to see what everyone's all worked up about.
| Original Score: 3/5

It's arguably the US mainstream's first art movie since Days of Heaven; and quite wonderful.
