    Haunting character study filled with fascinating personalities, robust images, and eccentric behaviors that will please art-house fans.

    Apart from a few choice flashbacks, the action is crawlingly linear--and opaque.
  3. 60
    Intelligent thriller--turns-- into an embarrassing gothic horror show.
  4. 50
    As with all of Egoyan's films, this new one comes cloaked in an atmosphere of dread, but for the first time there's no real purpose, intellectual or emotional, to all the free-floating anxiety.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    Has more ambition than the usual serial killer film, but curiously less urgency.

    A movie this implausible shouldn't be this dull.
