Not too thrilled with this thriller. Gratuitous sex, voices too quiet, a very seventies directing style. Hoffman his usual excellent self in one of his usual creepy roles. Finney good. (Why does he... Read more always play Americans these days?) Satisfying ending.
Well-made film with thoroughly unlikeable characters.
Suffers from over-dramatics, which is a pity considering the director and cast.
Thought, 'the director is a genius', and yes he is. A nuanced film, better aesthetic than the rest of the films at this time. Worthyish.
Yeah, that's truly hell. A well made movie. You see it through the perspective of the different characters. Recommended
This is a film I had seen before and while it was just OK I felt the continuous flashbacks were a bit much and detracted from the overall flow of the movie.
This movie gets your emotions boiling. A real provoker. Love it or hate it, you won't forget it in a hurry. I don't care what critics might say; P.S.Hoffman is a standout and in a league of his own... Read more. He just gets better and better, and what I like about him is you get a sense that he's giving you all he's got. He isn't one of those actors concerned about 'looking good'. In fact quite the opposite, he's a warts-'n-all kind of actor. Brilliant.
Great movie portraying the desperate situations some people get themselves into and the downward spiral they cause.
The storyline was good but I thought they made a bit of a dog's breakfast of it with too much jumping backwards and forwards.
Wow! I found this movie very absorbing and with a high sense of dread! The acting by by both Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke was fantastic. It is a long movie.
