    Not enough happens in it. And yet everything happens in it.
  2. 90
    A lovely piece of movie making: precisely controlled but with a lived-in scruffiness.

    A feature debut that packs a knockout punch.
  4. 90
    Praise will stick with you. It's more than worthy of its title.
  5. Heavier on mood than incident, but its vision of a doomed erotic power war has a lurching authenticity.
  6. 80
    Projects a confessional frankness about human relationships that has the messy feel of truth.
  7. 80
    A surprisingly affecting mood piece.
  8. Achieves a rare interweaving of the darkly poetical and raspy, cockeyed comedy.
  9. Their doomed fling is oddly hypnotic and ultimately haunting.
  10. 70
    Praise will get under your skin.
  11. Unrelentingly, admirably committed to its own grimness.

    The film's earthy frankness is refreshing.
