Reviews

  • "The good bits are sufficiently impressive it wouldn't be fair to hold its flaws against it too much. We mustn't be greedy for perfection."
    - Guardian
  • "As a satire on the industry, it comes with sharp teeth, together with an uncanny - and uncomfortable - ability to hold you in a vice like grip as the panic escalates."
    - The People's Movies
  • "The film's elements don't mesh as seamlessly as they should have... Yet the movie, at its best, can hold you in its grip."
    - Variety
