Rain Li's crisp cinematography gives the entwined stories different but complementary visual styles. Paul Zucker's editing supports each genre then poses fresh questions by leaping from one to the other.

You either swallow it and learn to love it, or you start running.

The film bets everything on an unconventional structure, but fails to do much with it.

Excellent New York City location shooting and the ever-reliable Joseph Gordon-Levitt can't salvage this gimmicky, overlong thriller from Scott McGehee and David Siegel...

The leads are immensely appealing, but the sum of their experiences equals nothing more profound than two earnest people wrestling with a tough decision.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lynn Collins are so interesting that it's easy to put up with the decision-making dithering that goes along with the title.

Bobby and Kate are puppets on strings, both pulled roundabout through McGehee-Siegel's phony proving ground toward a howler of a final exchange.

The result is some nice atmospherics tethered to a cripplingly half-baked existentialism.
