Dallas Observer
Because of the supremely artful way Shear and Reitz have pitched the story, it reaches into places few films, gay or straight, have gone.
88
Chicago Tribune
One of those small films that will, one hopes, find a larger audience through word of mouth.
80
A darkly intriguing drama that probes the very nature of love and the lasting effects of loss.

Los Angeles Times
Such a powerful experience that it is equally effective whether you have figured out from the start where it is headed or whether its denouement comes as a complete surprise.
80
TNT RoughCut
The journey -- long, dark, pungent, and twisted as it is -- is well worth the taking.
80
There's no denying its surreal, hypnotic effect.

New York Daily News
Smart, psychologically complex film is an offbeat and effective tale.
75
New York Post
Dark, morbidly funny and quite violent movie, which plays with audience members' heads in ways many people will find quite disturbing.
75
Boston Globe
It plays like Scorsese's ``After Hours,'' but for higher stakes.
50
If this were a more mainstream film with a shot at a wider audience, we'd probably be talking Oscar nominations for Futterman and Ball.
