  1. 88
    If a movie like this had a neat ending, the ending would be a lie. We do not want answers, but questions and observations.
  2. 73
    A thoughtful, stunning piece of work in what, of late, has been an otherwise arid indie landscape.
  3. 70
    The characters--their motives at once obvious and obscure--are almost painfully fascinating.
  4. 63
    Claire Dolan leaves you as unfulfilled as Claire feels after having sex with one of her johns.
  5. 63
    Simply not as involving or moving as it should be.
  6. 60
    Shattering in its own quiet way.
  7. Cartlidge's beautifully still performance, mournful one moment, defiant the next, lets you see into Claire's soul without editorializing or begging for our empathy.
  8. (Kerrigan) remains an insightful stylist with impressively high artistic standards.
  9. 20
    Less awful than inert, Claire Dolan comes across as a willfully bad movie.
