  • To shine in a turd like this shows Brody has the stuff that -- damn the Oscar jinx -- makes an actor last. show more

  • None of it is enough, though, to save this glum drama from its schematic self. show more

  • Not perfect; a vice cop played by Pam Grier is oddly conceived and unlikely in action, and the movie doesn't seem to know how to end. But as character studies of Jack and Claire, it is daring and inventive, and worthy of comparison with the films of a French master of criminal psychology like Jean-Pierre Melville. show more
