    Some cool moments, but I have no idea what the hell happened in this movie. The ending (in which earlier scenes and quotes are repeated over and over again) was painful to say the least. What might lead a film maker to end a film like this is beyond me.

    NRH is ideally suited for William Gibson fans, who I think might be satisfied with the screen adaptation of a short story that is just shy of two pages long. Its general dark and moody tones are in harmony with the characteristic plot lines, however, viewers who havn't read the short story or are not fans of the genre will likely find NRH incoherent and pointless.

The plot is generally weak, but the cinematography is quite good in that it stays faithful to the cyberpunk meets film noir hybrid genre. Expand

    Very good atmosphere created in a film, its not a film to track the story, its for the mood.

  1. It's moody and atmospheric. But with the exception of a few cool moments that remind you of Ferrara at his best, it's dull and written with little attention paid to basic storytelling.

    Affirms that soft-core porn is alive and well in cyberpunk.
  3. No place for literalists, but Ferrera fans should be pleased with this tale.
