  1. Sigourney Weaver is so daring and amazing, her veracity is at times painful to behold.
  2. The two lead actresses are exquisite in their divergent ways.
  3. One of the truest-seeming movies I've seen in some time and as one of the most odd and haunting.
  4. Sigourney Weaver and Julianne Moore share their pain in a depressing World.
  5. If it's not one of the five best of 1999, it's a personal best for Weaver, and that's pretty good.

    Something disturbing has happened to this story en route to the screen.
  7. Strangely unmoving. So what went wrong?
