    One of those go-out-for-coffee-afterward-and-talk-about-it movies, and those are always welcome. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Goldblum, who has made psychological confusion his actor's stock-in-trade, gives Nolan's behavior just enough credibility to keep his quest alive for us, and Heche gives a delightfully unaffected performance as Lucy. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Begins exceptionally well. Indeed, for at least its first half it's an unusually thoughtful, admirably underplayed piece of work of disorienting, rather harsh realism that builds its mysteries in pleasurably oblique and unpredictable ways. show more

    None of it rings true, and it distracts from the film's real heart, which, on its own, would have made for a strikingly original first film. show more

    Gregory Weinkauf New Times (L.A.)

    All in all, this is every inch a TV movie. show more
