  • Hoffs' Dublin appears to consist of stock street footage and a lot of stand-in California, which makes a hash of an exterior scene in which the characters complain about the incessant rain as the sun clearly shines through the damp. show more

  • Because "Petrol" is so grim, its few moments of repentance and reconciliation don't feel as contrived as they might otherwise; if any film has earned the right to be sentimental, it's this one. show more

  • Nothing happens that hasn't been done better in other films, among them Thomas Vinterberg's excellent 1998 "The Celebration." show more
