Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
A startling portrayal of how the cycle of abuse plays itself out in the lives of its victims. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
A gorgeous, heartbreaking and utterly convincing work of art. Full Review
David Edelstein
Araki is trying to work from the inside out; and he captures feelings about sexual exploitation that I've never seen onscreen--not all of them negative. Full Review
David Rooney
By turns spiky and lyrical, this unsettling drama will be anathema to many audiences, but is bound to be a provocative, talked-about release. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A helter-skelter ride of the soul, an unblinking, white-knuckle crash landing into the mushy mysteries of the subconscious. Full Review
