  1. Something haunting is going on here, but it's as difficult for the viewers as it is for the characters to sink their teeth into anything truly satisfying.
  2. 50
    The extremely intimate violence is more explicit than is the mainstream norm, and Dalle's mouth is the stuff of nightmares.
  3. 50
    As palpable as the atmosphere is, had the film boasted a clearer, more memorable story and performances that were a step above adequate, the creepiness wouldn't have simply lingered with the viewer, it would have gotten under their skin.
  4. Denis's pungent images create a nightmarish mood but don't bring full artistic coherence to her odd mix of gothic horror and postmodern reverie.
  5. 40
    A taut mess -- beautiful, gory, tedious and puzzling.
  6. Highly problematical. The trouble with "Trouble" is one of temperament. Denis' formality and seriousness make the horror genre a risky business for her, especially when sex is combined with outrageous gore.

    Vincent Gallo is extremely talented in many ways. He is also complex sensitive, poetic and very funny. The public responses to him varyVincent 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 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 »
