“..with its bravura technique and superbly synched turns from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Weinstein Co. release should generate robust returns and furious discussion long after its hugely anticipated Sept. 14 bow..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..this is the kind of film that gets richer and more beautiful in multiple viewings and for years to come. And that is the true test of art..”
by David Poland [Movie City News]
