[Ms. Kassell and Mr. Fechter] trick up Walter's character with so many conflicting moods and impulses and then place him within a post-prison society that is itself alternately oppressive and permissive.
Bacon deservedly has received most of the attention here, but Sedgwick, who doesn't work nearly enough, brings grit and hardscrabble realism to the role of a woman who has turned defiance into a protective shield.
If you're looking for a star of tomorrow, stop at Mos Def. The New York hip-hop artist gives a breakout performance as the morally indignant cop who keeps letting Walter know that he knows what he's doing.
