    A messy but hungry film like this is more interesting than cool technical perfection.
  2. Sloppy, self-satisfied and surprisingly heartfelt.

    Less an updated version of the Dostoevsky novel than an unusually somber Hollywood teen love story.
  4. 30
    Often succumbs to the craven hysteria perhaps inherent in its hoary premise.
  5. Not faithful enough to be an adaptation, too misguided to be considered an interpretation, and not funny enough to be a parody, this film would do well not to advertise its inspiration.
  6. 20
    Even dressed up in tabloid lighting and cut with jagged edits, this pulp nihilism never goes beyond daytime TV banality.
  7. A somber, draggy, deadweight, lugubrious, absurdly self serious version of ''American Beauty.''
