  • A triumph of acting, writing and directing that defies glib description...the kind of artful defiance that Hollywood is usually too timid to deliver: a jolting comedy that makes you laugh till it hurts. show more

  • A wonder of a film -- a luminous, beautifully executed drama that gathers the best cast of the year -- the best American film of the year. show more

  • A singular accomplishment so specifically keyed to Spacey's talents that it mandates going out on a limb to say it contains the performance that will ultimately be regarded as "the one." show more

    Watched it for the third time yesterday. Was still completely mesmerized by the story, acting, dream-like presentation of this tense family drama of mid-life crises in the suburbs.

    I hated this movie! I walked out at least three times. It was too real for me, it reminded me too much of growing up. ;(
