A chilling vision of the near-future carried by another fine performance from Saoirse Ronan.
See Jack reach for a better movie. Reach, Jack, reach!
If cinematic karma exists, this must be Kurt Russell’s punishment for making Death Proof.

I give it a B+.

Breathtakingly complex, sensitive, honest, and painful. Surely one of the best films of the year.
Great cast, meh script, but sort of charming in spite of itself.

Reminiscent of Sliding Doors but less successful.
From which I learned that if you really want to kill a guy, stab first, then shoot.
Excessively excessive, but Sharon Stone is right on the money.
