Gutsy, unconventional, bursting with raw urban energy, this surprisingly suspenseful drama portrays New York Hell's Kitchen residents whose lives are governed by the immutable circumstances of their tawdry existence. Full Review

The New York Times
Whenever the picture tries to be about something bigger, it turns predictable or maudlin or, in a few sad instances, both simultaneously. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Decidedly a minor item that's been on the shelf for a while but is nonetheless an effective calling card for its writer-director-star. Full Review
