  1. Consistently imaginative and persuasive in its plotting and writing. Tabak makes substantial demands on his wonderful cast but rewards them with roles of exceptional depth and dimension.
  2. One of those go-out-for-coffee-afterward-and-talk-about-it movies, and those are always welcome.
  3. 60
    Screenwriter Matthew Tabak's directing debut is carefully plotted, well acted and surprisingly free of cheap thrills.
  4. 50
    A minor-key diversion, might play relatively well on television, where you're listening with one ear while keeping the other cocked to the phone.
  5. Begins exceptionally well. Indeed, for at least its first half it's an unusually thoughtful, admirably underplayed piece of work of disorienting, rather harsh realism that builds its mysteries in pleasurably oblique and unpredictable ways.
  6. 50
    Amid the awkward pacing and gaping plot holes, the film's chief point of interest is Goldblum's morbidly fascinating performance: equal parts Walter Neff and Captain Kirk.
  7. All in all, this is every inch a TV movie.
