It's a deeply dubious luxury-tourist fantasy about parallel lives in various foreign hotel rooms, and it shows a very strange need to punish and humiliate its female characters.
November 13, 2014
An interminable illusive boondoggle with clunky turns and a flat, uninspiring reveal.

It's couture misery: dress by Valentino, watch by Breitling, lingering sexual regrets model's own.

If Crash set your teeth on edge, book in at the dentist's before seeing this one.

Everything gets just too damn convoluted for its own good, and it's hard to care what becomes of Haggis' characters as they're shifted around.

Avoid at all costs.

There are moments when this three-strand drama almost ascends to the emotional resonance of writer-director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning 2004 movie Crash.

2014 is barely past its midpoint, but, my friends, we have a winner: Paul Haggis' latest is a lock for worst movie of the year. It's a crashing bore with the tagline "Watch Me." Don't.

A glorious failure -- and one that's beautifully produced and acted. More than that, however, it's a bold film and an idiosyncratic work of great ambition and personal integrity.
July 15, 2014
Puzzling and implausibly fractious, it requires interminable patience and forgiveness.
July 11, 2014
Third Person' echoes writer-director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning "Crash" ─ weakly.
