Critics: Amy Adams has a great presence in this movie and while it is a supporting role she is a major force. - FemaleFirst
- It's a film bristling with vivid moments and unbeatable acting, but its interest is not in tidy narrative satisfactions but rather the excesses and extremes of human behaviour, the interplay of troubled souls desperate to find their footing. - Los Angeles Tomes
- A dense, baffling, thoroughly original epic that seems to divide viewers on the simple question of what it's supposed to be about. - Time Out Chicago
