    A textbook example of how a director can strip away plot, motivation, character, and meaning and still leave arrant pretension standing tall.
  2. Ultimately a hollow and pointless exercise.
  3. Embedded between all the sex and sunlight are some woefully underdeveloped ideas about American militarism and masculinity. Dumont doesn't bother to develop these ideas, principally because he seems to think it's enough to arrange his characters like puppets and tear off their heads.
  4. Alas, the plot eventually takes over, and it's exceptionally ugly and unpleasant.

    The "Humanite" director's Death Valley void is the real "Lost in Translation."

    Fails to captivate or intrigue at the most basic level.
