A worthwhile watch even if an overlooked film.

There's no likeability anywhere in this film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 13, 2013
The film begins and ends with scenes of acute existential reflection, a state actors rarely convey convincingly-least of all in a contemporary American film.

Douglas has a good supporting cast to work with though -- he's not the whole show despite appearing in every scene.

Gripping drama about getting older; with drinking, sex.

December 15, 2010
Michael Douglas gives his most accomplished and satisfying peformance in a decade (since Wonder Boys in 2000), playing a role that suits him like a silk glove.

A walking, talking screenplay.

Koppelman?s script is awash in phony scenarios.

October 8, 2010
A terrific turn by Douglas, and strong support, elevates this character-driven drama above its unlikeable protagonist.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 22, 2010
The film's knotty relationships and crisp dialogue are surpassed only by Douglas' captivating turn as a troubled heel whose pathetic behavior fools no one, least of all himself.

... [Michael] Douglas never drops the charm or the confidence, his greed or lust or simple arrogance pumping up beyond caring when confronted with his own sleaze.

It became such a bore that I found myself watching a 60-year-old man and repeatedly saying, Will you just grow up? It's just sad.

A bit too-neatly designed as The Ultimate Michael Douglas Experience, it's an irresistible one-man show of arrogant entitlement and aching vulnerability.
July 2, 2010
It's a fascinating character study isolated within a mediocre film.

Yet more proof that Michael Douglas can do anything he pleases so long as he's playing a jerk.

Nobody does oily like Michael Douglas.

Douglas gives a tour de force performance here and the rest of the cast is excellent as well. While I couldn't really buy Kalmen's behavior based on his motivations, Douglas does a tremendous job of selling this character anyway.

As much as Ben Kalmen is a terrific part for Douglas, it's a part that needs him more than he needs it.
