  • Mike Nichols' haunting, hypnotic Closer vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things. show more

  • Closer, in the end, lacks a certain heft. The language and the actions of the characters are brutal and devastating. The movie itself, a little too nice. show more

  • Bring Zoloft and a tank of oxygen to Closer, an airless, ultimately joyless drama of sexual politics.
