    A clever, atmospheric romantic drama that lacks something. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    You can't have as many twists and turns in a story as dot the i without testing the audience's patience, and losing it before delivering the punch line. show more

    New York Post

    The less you know going in, the more you'll enjoy it. Suffice it to say that it's a hugely entertaining thriller disguised as a chick flick. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Its seductive stylishness is undermined by one narrative twist too many; by the time the last revelation has been unveiled with a "But wait!" flourish, the contrivances have entirely overwhelmed the characters. show more

    The actors are all good, although not much rapport is conveyed, despite one hot sex scene. show more

    M. E. Russell Portland Oregonian

    It's fun junk. And it doesn't satisfy. Dot the I is a weird, pretty film with a dumb script, a skilled cast and a good twist, plus one hot sex scene and one brilliant scene-chew by D'Arcy. show more

    Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly

    The movie is in love with its own story loops and fancy, pop-dream cinematography from Almodóvar associate Affonso Beato, which is fine; it's also in love with its own indie-culture cleverness, which isn't. show more
