90
A diabolically clever psychological suspense movie.
67
Austin Chronicle
Worth a look.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Laced with a venomous wit, and turning progressively creepier as it unfolds, writer-director Jon Reiss' movie offers a black-humored study of suppressed rage, sexual gamesmanship, domination and subordination.
60
Things take an unexpected turn into far grimmer territory when the wormy Robert finally turns.
50
Well acted, but it doesn't enrich its metaphor beyond giving an old story a sour contemporary resonance.
50
New York Post
One of those potentially interesting movies that takes its sweet time getting to the point - by which time many audience members will likely have bailed out or dozed off.
50
San Francisco Examiner
A weakly performed rehash of master-slave role-reversal tales.
50
An engagingly grim psychological thriller.
25
San Francisco Chronicle
It's a bitter pill to swallow, featuring a quartet of unsympathetic characters and an unrelenting air of misanthropy.
25
New York Daily News
Since there's no suspense whatsoever, we're simply stuck with awful people doing awful things to each other.
