      Dick Lochte Los Angeles Free Press [Krishna Shah's] flaccid son-mother-lover triangular melodrama is such a misguided mediocrity that the boldface statement of ownership will undoubtedly be something Shah will live to regret, if he doesn't already. Jan 6, 2020 Full Review Maureen Koch Los Angeles Free Press Both [Bobby] Klein and [Joan] Hackett are exceptional in Rivals. Jan 6, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Very strange and very different but I can't help but appreciate it's artistic uniqueness. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Pre-Bad Ronald Scott Jacoby plays a super creepy kid with an Oedipus complex. Lots of eerie psychopathia sexualis in this one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
