Some of the parts are undeniably gripping; what gets lost are the characters themselves.

This is the first time [Stone] has tried to place himself inside a woman's imagination, and that he succeeds so well is due partly...to an extraordinary performance by Hiep Thi Le in the leading role.

Touches the heart not only as a cross-cultural treasure but as Oliver Stone's most soulful movie.
