  1. On the very edge of coherence -- but I find its decadent erotic poetry irresistible.
  2. 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.
  3. Quirky acting combines with Ferrara's dark, brooding style to give the throwaway story a noteworthy measure of dramatic and cinematic interest.
  4. 40
    A painfully claustrophobic picture.
  5. Reviewed by: Chuck Stephens

    The first two-thirds are turgid enough; in the last, Ferrara begins replaying scenes we've already seen earlier in the film.
  6. Reviewed by: Janet Maslin

    Affirms that soft-core porn is alive and well in cyberpunk.
