Consensus: Edward Norton delivers one of his finest performances in Leaves of Grass, but he's overpowered by the movie's many jarring tonal shifts.

Brandon Judell

I could only bear 35 minutes, and I haven't walked out of anything since 'You, Me and Dupree.'

As a writer-director, Nelson keeps the laughs coming at a steady pace, and never condescends to his articulate redneck characters.

An offbeat thriller that is deepened -- rather than derailed -- by its tricky shift from darkly funny to just plain dark.

Mr. Norton is a pleasure to watch, and so is everyone else.

The National (UAE)

Maybe too small-scale to be anything truly special, but an original and witty film that both surprises and entertains.

Very nearly an excellent movie: a by times funny Good Brother vs. Bad Brother story that plays into that famous Amercian trope: You Can't Go Home Again.… More

A pseudo-philosophical comedy that begins well but then dives into sheer stupidity after the first forty minutes. Even if Edward Norton is great playing twin… More

Because of this film's mixture of wild, wacky characters, crime drama, stoner comedy, nutty plot, and philosophy, it would be understandable if you… More

I am an Ed Norton fan, so I am probably a little biased. This is a different, but entertaining movie. Stick with it, and it eventually makes sense. Plenty of… More
