  • dazzlingly gorgeous, as are its stars. But peeling back layer upon layer of exquisite ennui reveals nothing but emptiness, sprinkled with stilted sentiments. Full Review

  • The actors aren't unhinged enough for the scathing conceit, and the script is more of a mechanism than a revelation. Full Review
