    Praise will stick with you. It's more than worthy of its title.

    A lovely piece of movie making: precisely controlled but with a lived-in scruffiness.
  4. 80
    Projects a confessional frankness about human relationships that has the messy feel of truth.
  5. Achieves a rare interweaving of the darkly poetical and raspy, cockeyed comedy.
  6. 70
    Praise will get under your skin.
  7. The film's earthy frankness is refreshing.
