Rarely has so much of so little consequence been so closely examined.

Sometimes Wonderland does make you wonder why you're wasting your time with these losers. But there's also a lot here that stays with you.

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.

A film whose effects are as hard to wash away as blood.

Overblown, overheated, overdirected, overacted, overlong and over here, in the local bijoux.

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.

Wonderland never gives us a single reason to care about any of these people.

Wonderland may not be the feel-good movie of the year; in fact it feels pretty lousy most of the time. But it offers a dark story well-told with some truly fine performances.

An unsettling, sordid, overly stylized and intensely well-done drama.
