San Francisco Chronicle
The Coens' plotting, with its suspense and reversals, is a source of amazement and delight. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The Coens have used the noir idiom to fashion a haunting, beautifully made movie that refers to nothing outside itself and that disperses like a vapor as soon as it's over. Full Review
David Edelstein
The film is marvelous fun on its own terms -- I laughed all the way through it. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
When you're in the hands of the Coen brothers, you're in for sheer originality. Full Review

Boston Globe
Lacks the requisite sense of dread. Full Review
