Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online I'm always happy to see actors of color in film, but even more so I am happy to see them in good films. Rated: B+ Sep 1, 2017 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star A story that yields its secrets slowly but sinuously, making the most of its language and cultural differences. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 30, 2015 Full Review Scott Marks San Diego Reader Boyle, known best for a string of winning romantic comedies (Surrogate Valentine, Daylight Savings) now finds himself making a successful leap to the dark side with this decidedly "hard-Boyled" genre picture. Rated: 4/4 Apr 30, 2015 Full Review Jennifer Merin The daringly slow-paced and understated narrative is so full of surprises and interesting idiosyncrasies that it keeps you thoroughly engaged, while giving you time to meditate on the strange ironies of a woman's success, love and loneliness. Oct 4, 2021 Full Review Nikki Baughan It's as visually stunning as it is narratively engaging. Oct 4, 2021 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens Fresh and invigorating... a firm grasp on story and development. Tension builds brilliantly...Characters are extremely well-crafted with performances to match. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 14, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Nicola B An enjoyable moody crime mystery. The story was a slow burn, the perfect Sunday evening watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/28/24 Full Review Ahmad L Awful movie. The tone is all over the place. The plot is so unbelievable, it plays like a dark comedy. Maybe the critics enjoyed the cinematography or costume design, because the high rating can't be due to the story, plot and acting. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Carlos T Wow. Fabulous murder mystery. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/23 Full Review bob a I love a good mystery. This one unfolded slowly with an unexpected ending. Not the ending I might have hoped for, but clearly not formulaic. So it held my interest and was entertaining. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Lee C Interesting, thoughtful, and well made. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/23/22 Full Review Audience Member A pretty color pallet and solid cinematography helped this slow-burn of a thriller move into the mid-(70s). Pepe Serna as Sheriff Paul Del Moral became more likeable as the movie progressed. Ayako Fujitani was a little bland at first, but eventually came into her own. Many reveals throughout, some more satisfying than others. A pleasantly shocking twist. Oh, and there are turtles. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
