She creates an affecting counterpoint to the hyper-charged insanity back at the Wonderland condo.

The main interest here is the acting, which is, by turns, entertaining or just entertainingly bad, with lots of grungy seriousness and Method-trained twitching, but also some moments of real gusto.

Wonderland represents another low-rung on the downward descent of actor Val Kilmer.

It's theoretically possible to make a fascinating film about a thieving, self-indulgent, freebasing, treacherous scumbag who pimps his girlfriend to a gangster and contributes nothing to society. Wonderland isn't that film.
October 24, 2003
Too bad Kilmer's [strong] performance is in service to a lurid and repellent account of the 1981 Wonderland murders.

Watching a movie about these wasted lives just made me feel like I was wasting mine for sitting through it.

These were very bad people, but very good actors play them.

An engrossing, if harrowing, trip through the looking glass.

Kilmer's persona is strong, and he brings a certain energy to the screen, but he does nothing to make John Holmes any more interesting than the dope addict of the week on 'NYPD Blue.'

We've frankly heard it all before.

October 17, 2003
A film whose effects are as hard to wash away as blood.
October 17, 2003
Overblown, overheated, overdirected, overacted, overlong and over here, in the local bijoux.
October 17, 2003
Not quite the second coming of Boogie Nights.

If for some reason you are fascinated by the Wonderland murders, look up the Rolling Stone article of 1989 that brought national attention to the gruesome case. Otherwise, your local cineplex has lots of choices with more redeeming social value.

Watching Wonderland is like being trapped in a reeking shed under a naked light bulb, morosely reading old tabloids that have lost their shock value.

A movie that manages to make both sex and violence dull.

In the end, Wonderland seems to about something banal -- that a junkie will say or do just about anything.
October 17, 2003
A flashy, mediocre picture.
October 17, 2003
Wonderland never gives us a single reason to care about any of these people.

Along with their tickets to Wonderland, moviegoers should also be given a moist towelette. That way after the film they won't have to stand in line at the restroom to wash off the slime.
