    The only surprise about U-Turn is the good reviews it got from people who should know better.

    The parade of eccentrics never ends, and Stone's near-miraculous achievement is to drain the life right out of material so sordid you'd think it couldn't help but be interesting. A must to avoid.
  4. The film has no discipline, but that's okay because it has no suspense, either.
