    Picture "Fargo" played with no sense of comedy, and you'll get some idea of the absurdity of this drunken floozy, clicking and wobbling on high heels, often with bits of her anatomy hanging out, trying to pull off the perfect crime.
  2. The end result is like Quentin Tarantino reworking a Charles Bukowski story.

    I was memorized by Swinton's devasting performance from start to finish. Tilda does deserve an Oscar for this!

    Tilda Swinton's amazing performance makes the film. She puts so much thought into every role. It's a good story, fine direction and cinematography. It's a very detailed film. One complaint, more should have been cut, it's overlong. Full Review »
