  • Summary: A film about the road to fame -- fame at any cost, at any level. (Sony Pictures Classics)
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 24
  2. Negative: 5 out of 24
  1. Filled with bleak, beautiful Hopperesque tableaus and strange characters whose lives intersect.
  2. The acting is primo and the cinematography, on high-definition video by the gifted M. David Mullen, is striking.
  3. Reviewed by: Carla Meyer

    The filmmakers throw in an extended flatulence routine and enough graphic references to female anatomy to make "The Vagina Monologues" blush.
  4. Jackpot has much that is sweet and funny, but it is not overly original--and it is overly long and not as coherent as it might be.
  5. Where "Twin Falls" was slow, brooding and haunting in a manner that fit the subject matter -- the imminent death of one of the principal characters -- Jackpot is just slow and uneventful, like a cross-country Greyhound bus trip that never stops.
  6. 30
    Nobody hits the jackpot here, certainly not filmmakers Michael and Mark Polish, whose audacious, empathic first film, "Twin Falls Idaho," showed such promise.
