Among the most sophisticated, fully realized and satisfying films of the year.

San Francisco Chronicle
An unforgettable film.
90
So never mind the Xmas schlock -- go treat yourself at once to this sensationally entertaining soul food.
88
The triptych is a device but never a gimmick: three windows into one fractured soul.
80
Chicago Reader
Roy's story is fascinating in its own right, exploring the hero's mingled shame over his class background and homosexuality, and painting a vicious portrait of Britain's coke-snorting upper crust in the late 70s.
70
It's quite difficult to find a character we can remotely identity with. This is frustrating because the film is so profoundly well written, acted and filmed.
63
New York Post
Watching three frames at once is disconcerting at first, but eventually the experience gives the film a high-tech boost.
60
Subtle performances and the "you are there" immediacy conferred by digital video give Roy's film the feel of a series of stolen moments.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
The technique adds little in the way of illumination and a lot in terms of inducing a migraine.
50
An interesting though not extremely successful experiment, but it definitely makes you want to see what Duncan Roy does next.
