  1. Director Bernard Rose has created a committed, intelligent and fascinating piece of work with no irony about it.
  2. 100
    Huston's performance is spellbinding. And the naturally lit digital cinematography (by Rose and Ron Forsythe) is both poetic and harrowingly intimate in depicting Ivan's impending death.
  3. 70
    To the degree that ivans xtc. works, it's thanks to Huston's revelatory performance.
  4. Its high-definition video images -- are coated with a convincing sheen of disgust, and Huston's performance is riveting.
  5. 60
    Boldly engineering a collision between tawdry B-movie flamboyance and grandiose spiritual anomie, Rose's film, true to its source material, provides a tenacious demonstration of death as the great equalizer.
  6. 38
    Behind the glitz, Hollywood is sordid and disgusting. Quelle surprise!
