The movie goes way over the top near the end, but unlike Hollywood films, which would've added violence and a car chase, The Operator's excesses all are in keeping with its theme.

This debut film from local writer-director Jon Dichter has an interesting concept, but its execution feels a bit amateurish, especially in the dialogue.

...Dichter expects us to accept his abrupt transformation from ruthless player to spiritual convert with nothing more than a teary confession.

Except for its excesses and too-easy end, Mr. Dichter's original script takes us into Coen country.

Though clearly shot on a shoestring, it's handsome, tightly written and generally well acted.

It's not very often you get to see a feature film in which Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian wisdom work together to save a person's soul.

Ends up feeling suffocatingly self-centered.

The closer we get to unveiling Shiva ... the more ludicrous a conceit she becomes.
October 12, 2001
A nifty little indie sleeper.
October 12, 2001
Until it swerves out of control, however, The Operator ... offers a reasonably entertaining caricature of macho nouveau-riche hubris.

Would be insufferably preachy if it weren't such a rookie's-first-day botch.
October 1, 2001
A pretty good time, especially considering its obvious budget constraints.

Sardonic, chic, sexy, The Operator gives sharp new meaning to 411.
