Ratings & Reviews

  • Has its effectively nasty, chilling moments -- and it also brings body piercing to new heights of ickiness.

  • Repetitive, aimless, and as frustrating as you'd imagine any two-hour music video to be.

  • Tarsem uses the dramatically shallow plot to create a dream world densely packed with images of beauty and terror that cling to the memory even if you don't want them to.
