Time Out by

Refusing ever to dwell, it cuts sharp rather than deep, but sharp enough.


The New Yorker by Pauline Kael

So calculatedly cool and soulless and nastily erotic that it seems to belong to a new genre of virtuoso viciousness. What makes the movie unusual is the metallic elegance and the singleminded proficiency with which it adheres its sadism-for-the-connoisseur formula.
