  1. 100
    Among the most sophisticated, fully realized and satisfying films of the year.
  2. 90
    So never mind the Xmas schlock -- go treat yourself at once to this sensationally entertaining soul food.
  3. 60
    His (Roy's) informed contempt is highly entertaining, but he neglects some of the more problematical and perhaps more illuminating aspects of his story.
  4. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    60
    Always watchable yet ultimately self-defeating in terms of its tonal/aesthetic choices.
  5. 60
    Cumulatively, the echo-chamber syntax achieves a kind of atonal harmony, meshing with the themes of reinvention and self-presentation: The disjunction between the panels is tantamount to the gap between image and reality.
  6. 40
    Divided into a triptych of images sprawled across a Cinemascope frame, AKA rarely uses the extra screens for information that couldn't be conveyed well enough in one.
