“..the movie even gets away with its classicist vibe for a good while too..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 5

“..just as the title awkwardly envelops a movie star's demise in heavy symbolism, all this plays out rather clunkily in the script by Thornton and Tom Epperson..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..it feels so slow, in fact, that I commented on the way out that it's very dangerous to place a false ending in anything that slow..”
by Linda Holmes [NPR]
2.5 of 5

“..but in its best moments, you can see what the film might have been with half a dozen fewer characters..”
