  1. A true American tragedy, directed with skill and conviction.
  2. Reviewed by: David Ansen

    A hauntingly beautiful tone poem.
  3. The result is a movie that seems not quite real and yet never false but somehow partakes of both -- rather like the prospect of death.
  4. 70
    In the end, it feels like a life aestheticized, not examined.
  5. 63
    Van Sant, following "Gerry" and the superb "Elephant," is on the same elliptical quest. His journey is labored but undeniably hypnotic.
  6. 50
    Van Sant's refusal to delve into his subject in anything but an abstract way renders the movie pointless and frustrating -- a lyrical, lovely tone poem, signifying little.
  7. In trouble from its first minutes.
