Antisentimental to a fault. Full Review
Bruce Fretts
Entertainment Weekly
So willfully bleak and profanity-filled, it could only have been written and directed by an actor. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Leads you through a miserable childhood without sentimentality or relief. The effect is torturous. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
This is a smart film, told in a minor key, that augurs well for Whaley's directing career. Full Review
F. X. Feeney
L.A. Weekly
Whaley successfully balances his scenes on a knife-edge of tenderness and anger that was Truffaut's trademark. Full Review
