    Bad in an audacious sort of way. Convincing portrayal by Sands of the obsessed mind. The story goes on to depict physically what Hollywood has been trying to do to us mentally for decades. And it's not a pretty sight.

    Just awful. But uniquely awful -- awful in a way that might just attract a cult audience. [3 Sept 1993]

    Even if the script delivered, the film would frankly be overwhelmed by the volume of noteriety that has attended it. [3 Sept 1993]
