    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    The first film to build on the enormously influential "Pulp Fiction" instead of simply mimicking it. It has the games with time, the low-life dialogue, the absurd violent situations, but it also has its own texture. show more

    It's a nice mix, an elegantly smoky and dangerous cocktail -- just like the old noirs, but in a more modern, shinier glass. And since the basic brew is Elmore Leonard's, it tickles as it goes down. [26 June 1998]

    [Soderbergh] plays with time and narrative to reveal character, mood and longing in ways you just don't find in a mainstream crime picture. show more
