Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/29/1990
"...Pure pleasure....The film is extravagantly, mercilessly funny....[A] thrilling one-of-a-kind film..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/20/1991
"...A film both eloquently impish and brilliant....A jewel of a movie, a work of high literacy, bawdy good spirits, blazing wit, bizarre charm and eerie suspense..."
Premiere - 06/01/2005
"Conceptually and intellectually....This stands its ground handily..."
