Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Another of De Palma's fearlessly experimental whims."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"...[represents] the worst of DePalma's movies (but his worst is still a whole lot better than most directors' best)."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is the movie not the perfume; its smell is not quite as captivating."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"In spite of Vilmos Zsigmond's overrrated, overly diffuse photography, this is a surprisingly poignant mystery about love, loss and, well, obsession."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"DePalma as he starts spiralling into sub-Hitchcock."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Solid DePalma, which means it is very mediocre Hitchcock."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"...Not the deeply felt soul-searcher that is Vertigo."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
