Critic Reviews

  1. Its high-definition video images -- are coated with a convincing sheen of disgust, and Huston's performance is riveting.
  2. 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.
  3. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    Achieves a certain poignancy through its sensitivity to mortality in a context where illness and death are often thought of primarily in terms of gossip, blown deals and lost money.
  4. It is both inside-baseball and self-parody, exposing a world that is just as ruthless and shallow as we've been shown it is in films like "The Player" and "Permanent Midnight."
  5. Not enough to save ivansxtc from, of all things, dullness.
