The movie just seems to happen, to grow out of the ground like a thorny plant, revealing the intricate intelligence of its design only in hindsight.

The acting is top-notch, and LaPaglia, who makes the cop's torment palpable, gives the performance of his career.

What's surprising is how easy it is to follow the plot, and how the coincidences don't get in the way.

A strong, consistently engrossing drama that boils with emotions distinctly real and recognizable.

Lean, hard and ruthless, the movie is flab-free– a stripped down, tough younger brother to Paul Thomas Anderson's glorious "Magnolia" (another multi-stranded, flower-named flick).
