January 1, 2012
Writer-director Rafi Pitts manages an atmosphere of choked, ambiguous dread that recalls nothing less than Godard's Alphaville.
November 3, 2010
Moody and rather depressing, it's also haunting and utterly involving right to the bitter end.
January 5, 2012
The film is stunningly composed, with images that convey Pitts' sense of being ground down by modernity and beset by institutional hypocrisy.

A lean, disturbing and beautifully photographed thriller...

If you find it convenient to think of Iran more as a bad dream than as a perceptible place, this is the film for you.
November 1, 2010
Pitts is a solemn, silent presence and his director's eye ensures a succession of expertly composed images that each tell a story.
November 1, 2010
It doesn't offer even a basic driving narrative that might at least have engaged our attention.
October 29, 2010
The biggest problem with the film is not its snail's saunter, but rather the minimalist way Pitts approaches the scripting.
October 29, 2010
A film with a split personality, it initially intrigues before eventually infuriating.
October 28, 2010
The story dulls into a cat-and-mouse pursuit narrative, with Pitts's own inexpressive performance one weakness among many.
