  1. A demented, orgiastically gory vampire/sex parable.
  2. Ultimately seems naïve. In developing the comparison of sex and cannibalism, it never goes beyond the standard Draculian symbol of blood to include other bodily substances.
  3. Insipid, self-indulgent bit of art-house macabre.
  4. Maybe there's a metaphor here, but figuring it out wouldn't make Trouble Every Day any better.

    This modern-day vampire story is purposefully shocking in its eroticized gore, if unintentionally dull in its lack of poetic frissons.
  6. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    Over-long, under-written and needlessly obscure instead of genuinely atmospheric.

    Vincent Gallo is extremely talented in many ways. He is also complex sensitive, poetic and very funny. The public responses to him vary greatly. He is completely misunderstood and those who misunderstand his intensions and humor will certainly misunderstand his masterful works of art. Gallo's performance in Trouble Every Day is fantastic Full Review »

    Perfection, in every single way, but I just can't explain why. It contains one scene of absolutely carnage, and another which left me very, very unsettled, both of which were very disturbing and gory, but somehow they contributed to the bigger picture, lifting a moody, spectacularly structured film into a higher realm. The result is a bloody, brilliant, bold and overwhelming experience. The critics know nothing - this is one of the greats. Full Review »
