    About the biggest zero of a movie you could fathom. It's got absolutely no plot acceleration, and the whole thing feels like it just woke up from a hangover.

  1. Sacrificing content for style, Caruso gives us a lot to look at but little to ponder.
  2. The cumulative effect of the movie is repulsive and depressing.

    The Salton Sea isn't without interest or ideas, though some of the better ones are cribbed from David Fincher and, especially, Martin Scorsese.
