Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This wanbabe noir is frustrating due to the meandering nature of the pretentious, riddle-like script and lethargic, incompetent direction of Paul Auster in his solo directorial debut"
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"I just got the feeling Auster didn't know too much more about this mystery than the viewer did."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Less spellbinding than it wants to be, losing its energy and occasionally its brains in long passages of surprisingly sentimental schmaltz."
‑ David Sterritt, Film Scouts
"Auster's script asks us to suspend our disbelief far more than is reasonable."
‑ Mike DeWolfe, Apollo Guide
"Right up to the end, which was a lousy cheat ending, I was entranced by the story and the characters."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Whatever."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
