    A grim and gritty movie, but sardonically funny at the same time.
  2. 80
    If Blake Edwards wrote a script and then Abel Ferrara directed it, it might look something like Nowhere Man.
  3. 70
    Nowhere Man, despite a tossed-off ending, is a compulsive bit of meta-exploitation.
  4. A weird blooper reel, shown as the credits roll, records how often the actors broke into nervous laughter, and this goofy coda undermines any serious intent or honest emotion in the previous, tedious 80 minutes.
  5. The bleak absurdity of its predicaments cries out for a tone of pitch-dark comedy to stave off the unintended laughter that it is virtually certain to elicit.
  6. 20
    The result is an unpleasant slog to an unrewarding conclusion that feels far longer than it is.
  7. 0
    Cheap and ugly in every sense--morally, cinematically, creatively--Nowhere Man accomplishes the seemingly impossible by dragging the seedy revenge genre to a horrific new nadir.
