Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... like the gangster figures of the 1930s, he sees only himself and the world around him and treats everything/everyone else as a stepping stone or an obstacle."

"Even more so than its plot, the film is notable for its very stark, sharp black-and-white look; each shot almost feels like a paper cut."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
