WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Movieline by

It's a low-blood-pressure version of the kind of thing James M. Cain used to do in his sleep, and its filmmaking accomplishment is as minimalist as its narrative ambition is minimal.
100

Salon by Andrew O'Hehir

A pitch-perfect blend of darkness and sweetness, built around a masterful performance by a great actor.
83

IndieWire by Eric Kohn

Cold-blooded killers rarely look this pathetic, which testifies to the impressive balance of Skarsgård's amusingly low-key performance.
67

The A.V. Club by Noel Murray

Skarsgård brings some redemptive soul to the role of a man who gradually begins to understand the aptness of his favorite Pretenders album: "Learning To Crawl."

The Hollywood Reporter by Ray Bennett

Played for laughs drawn from characters rather than funny lines, the Norwegian film is a charmer with Stellan Skarsgard for once in a role worthy of his attention.
