Critics Reviews

TV Guide
But for all the profane language and sexual frankness, Soderbergh's film is no more cynical or world-weary than its inspirations, and in the end, it feels like a clever trick wrapped around a hollow center.

This is Soderbergh's show, and a haunting and hypnotic show it is.

A film made with a tremendous amount filmmaking skill, but little soul. The style is all 40s cinema, with an attempt to use modern technique and sensibility. The result is a movie that appears on every level to be good, but lacks a warmth of...
