Has its own peculiar sensibility, a sort of magical grotesqueness. . . . It's too bad that Woodley doesn't push his themes and ideas further, blurring reality and dream more profoundly.

Part comedy, part horror and part stream-of-consciousness, the low-budget film betrays influences ranging from retro-maven Guy Maddin to Woodley's own uncle David Cronenberg, all held together by Woodley's own unique spark.

A disturbing movie with new talents to watch ...

... I've come to appreciate the comic side of it.

What about those fundamentals of engagement that keep filmgoers in their seats?
May 27, 2004
Reeks of film-school, 'Donnie Darko'-inspired weirdness. It's the sort of movie that would be pretentious if it were smart enough to figure out how.
May 21, 2004
Smacks of upscale student work with a command of atmospherics but a script mixed in a blender of concept doodles.

As weird and off-putting as portions of the film are, the most serious problem is Pitt's performance.

Utterly wrongheaded and indistinctly creepy, in that yawn-inducing way of pretentious twaddle...

Quirkiness alone can't substitute for a compelling story line, interesting themes or real characters.

The surprise is how utterly original [Woodley's] gorgeously mounted curiosity seems.

Michael Pitt, the baby-faced actor who recently played a more sophisticated cinephile in Bertolucci's "The Dreamers," holds the film together just by being himself.
April 22, 2004
A thriller that shamelessly rummages through other movies in search of shocks.
April 22, 2004
Most of this weird-for-weird's-sake film is set inside a cluttered store for movie props where a pathologically shy young clerk (Michael Pitt) lives and works.
April 21, 2004
A parable on cine-enchantment that itself fails to enchant.
April 20, 2004
A film about a guy with a fantasy life so rich it could make Walter Mitty envious.
April 18, 2004
A film rich in depth and texture, "Rhinoceros Eyes" should give avid cinastes a pleasurable time at the theatre.
