Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Figgis aims for an intellectual, erotic thriller, but what we get is wooden, pretentious and clichéd."
‑ Carmen Gray, Total Film
"It runs out of steam early on, but not before it has struck some sparks."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) continues to explore experimental styles of cinema (see Timecode or Hotel) with this playful in-joke about the act of artistic creation."
‑ Rich Cline,
"[A] convoluted noir thriller that interweaves a variety of narratives."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"In its attempt to educate and involve the audience it unfortunately ends up excluding them."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"A pretentious bit of fluff ..."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"This noir-referencing drama from Brit digi-alchemist Mike Figgis is a didactic and haughty bore."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
