Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Both stupefyingly bad and utterly overpowering; it can elicit, sometimes within a single scene, a gasp of rapture and a spasm of revulsion.

  • 20

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    So exasperating in its contradictions, so frustrating in its fakery, so deeply irritating in its pretensions, it's frankly hard to know where to begin to dissect it.

  • 20

    Variety Derek Elley

    A 2½-hour demo of auteurist self-importance that's artistically bankrupt on almost every level.
