Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Anderson, his superb ensemble cast and inspired cinematographer Uta Briesewitz, appeal at once to the intellect and the emotions as they build suspense and tension mercilessly.

  • 50

    The New York Times Dave Kehr

    The film, too artfully conceived to deliver many overt shocks, often feels long and aimless.

  • 30

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Little more than an overworked exercise in jostling red herrings, and not particularly fresh herrings at that.
