...The film ravenously sinks its teeth into the juiciest kinds of evil....An elegant piece of filmmaking that sustains a visual mood of sensuous gloom...
New York Times
Rating: B -- Elegantly stylish, intensely erotic, and slightly perverse, this rendition of Thomson's pulp novel is an art movie that's likely to divide sharply film critics and audiences--go for the ride.
It's a bizarre relationship, tender and respectful with a suggestively incestuous undercurrent that pulls at the story, like a schizophrenic, drug addled take on Tennessee Williams Full Review
Sheryl Lee, as the cop who Billy Zane is scamming and sleeping with gives such a terrible performance that is simultaneously absolutely perfect. She's the most accurate representative of the movie as a whole. Full Review
When a cheap con artist initiates a kinky affair with a straitlaced policewoman, hoping to relieve her of her seaside real estate and earnings, it drives a wedge into his relationship with his sister and co-conspirator, with whom he is...close. Perverse period noir, based on a short story by Jim Thompson.
