Ian Douglas: This film has divided critics and audiences all over. I am one of those who did not like it, while others praise it as high art. The hand-held camera use was excessive, making me want to scream to keep the damn thing still. The musical interludes add nothing to the plot and merely irritated, especially when Bjork sang in her five-year-old girlie voice. The motivation for the lead character to get herself into such a mess -- and stay there -- made no sense, and I got to thinking that maybe the gene pool would be better off without such a stupid person in it.

Anthony Richard (40): It is a story about how a legal system may fail a person most in need of insight.
