  1. Sci-fi has rarely been so playful.
  2. 70
    A quiet tour de force for Tilda Swinton, who plays researcher Rosetta Stone and her feisty but fragile alter egos.
  3. 50
    A minor addition to the tiny genre of feminist science fiction films
  4. 40
    The film's shortcomings notwithstanding, it's a must-see for Swinton fans, who can select a favorite among four different variations of their idol or simply adore them all.
  5. Reviewed by: Ty Burr

    Has a welcome humor but only in theory, and theory, chilly and self-involved, is where this filmmaker seems most at home. Like its bio-digital sirens, the movie never quite comes alive.
  6. It's muddled and shallow and obvious. Worse, it fails as entertainment, being so ineptly directed and written it often has the feel of a high school production by kids with more money and ambition than talent.
  7. The results might make for some swell production stills, but as a motion picture, Teknolust never really makes it alive out of Hershman's head.
