Time Out

This feverish state-of-the-split-nation address finds Russell tossing everything that matters -- and more -- into the pot, and producing a pretty indigestible and very messy stew.

So willfully, smugly eccentric that it grows tiresome rather quickly.

You don't get many clear answers from this film and maybe that's for the better.

Adventurous, challenging and filled with small moments of delight. Unfortunately, it's also self-indulgent, repetitious and the sort of movie you wish was great but isn't.

Any movie that features Mark Wahlberg and Jason Schwartzman whacking each other in the face with a ball automatically deserves taking a look at. Released in… More

The general opinion about this movie seems curiously divided between finding it either smart or pretentious, but for me it is neither, rather a quirky, mildly… More

An extremely bizarre descent into the madness that only outlandish philosophical interpretations can evoke. The complete transformations of the characters is… More
