Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Haas' literal-minded adaptation, something he also did effectively with the more visually opulent Angels and Insects, is helpful in directly laying out our own moral debate, where our sense of social obligation bumps up against our moralistic outrage."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"A true original. Fascinatingly off-beat. One of the most underrated, overlooked films of the 1990s."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Spellbing film about the capriciousnes of human nature and the soullessness of lives enslaved to wealt"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
