    The real star of the film, however, is Shapiro who, despite treading on marginally derivative subject matter, demonstrates a solid sense of style and a refreshingly delicate hand with actors.

    Despite the ominous feel, this is a mystery about losing or gaining lives and unknown detours.

    Monogamy sets up a nifty idea that it doesn't follow through.

    Ultimately suffers from a late-inning collapse into thematic obviousness and multiple endings.

    With modest resources, some nice digital camerawork and an appealing cast - the likable Ms. Jones draws you in easily - Mr. Shapiro keeps you engaged even when his story falters.

    While Shapiro does a fine job of emulating kink classics like "Blow Out," his film lacks one element that De Palma wouldn't have been caught dead without: a sense of humor.

    Monogamy doesn't manage to find anything particularly new to say, and says it very, very slowly.

    A painfully dull plunge into the suffocating self-absorption that seems to be killing modern romance.
