    A pretty ugly movie in its own right. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    But the film has a poetic pulse, its ups and downs accompanied by some smartly chosen pop songs, a seductive original score and McKidd's husky voice-over narration. show more

    Ray Bennett The Hollywood Reporter

    A full-flavored, absorbing tragedy. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The pacing soon grows dull and the frequent narration is a nonstop string of clichés, platitudes, and truisms that should have been flung out the cutting-room window. show more

    Janet Maslin The New York Times

    The tedium of this antidrinking hoodlum's tale inspires the wrong kind of longing entirely. show more
