Movie Reviews

  • tone is an even bigger problem than it was in his last produced screenplay
    1.5 of 5 by Sheri Linden [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the variously eccentric characters and their flat Americana-kitsch backdrop never really feel like they're part of the same movie, either
    by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice ]
  • the tone veers so wildly and uncertainly from black comedy to would-be wrenching emotional drama that you just stare at the screen, blinking in disbelief
    by David Noh [Film Journal International ]
  • the result here is the type of calamity that should be more compelling than it is
    by Scott Tobias [NPR ]
  • the movie as a whole falls victim to a dewy kind of Tennessee Williams-itis
    2 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • the more artistically ambitious and, perhaps for that reason, the more annoying
    2 of 4 by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail ]
  • the film tends to treat Virginia like a tragic heroine of a vintage melodrama
    5 of 5 by Alison Willmore [Movieline ]
  • the film is too intently focused on exposing how bad they are at maintaining their secrets, which leads to a slew of stupid outcomes
    1.5 of 4 by Jesse Cataldo [Slant Magazine ]
  • plot twists strain believability
    2 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
  • overflowing with subplots and oddball characters
    2 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • has much if anything to do with the upcoming US presidential election
    by Prairie Miller [News Blaze ]
  • constantly destabilized by scripted swings between comedy and drama, realism and fantasy, genuine catharsis and indie-film ornamentation
    2 of 5 by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York ]
