  • Shows glimmers of great drama, but jettisons too much essential cargo (character development, relationships, plot, common sense) in an effort to be lean and clean. show more

  • Despite the deftness with which Bigelow handles the transitions, the modern story never attains the intrigue and tension of the period tale. show more

  • Though it never rises to its full potential as a film, still offers a great deal of insight into the female condition and the timeless danger of emotions repressed. show more
