Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 28 out of 40
  2. Negative: 0 out of 40
  1. The movie has a mystery, and moral unease, that lingers.
  2. A story of obsession and honor, deception and self-deception set against a sharply etched landscape of political upheaval and intrigue. Malkovich orchestrates all this with assuredness, and Bardem, looking weary and worn, inhabits his character with a realness, a truth, that's downright spooky. And beautiful.

    Patient and plodding -- but as realized by John Malkovich, in his directorial debut, utterly absorbing.
