Reviews

“A RICH, WINCINGLY FUNNY METAPHYSICAL FARCE.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“THE WORK OF A MASTER FILMMAKER. I was drained by this film — so emotionally depleted that there was a moment, two-thirds of the way through, when I wondered if maybe I should leave the theater and gather my thoughts and come back later for the rest of the ‘comedy.’”
– Roger Ebert

“DELIRIOUS AND CHALLENGING, a postmodern Ulysses in Nighttown.”
– Richard Schickel, TIME
