A small revolution tucked inside clichés and willful artistic ineptitude.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Seeks to shock and to outrage, and so far it's done both quite nicely.

Rolling Stone
Certainly blunt, and since Anderson and Bach are veterans of the porn trade, there is no skimping on the sex.
50
Strictly for adventurous moviegoers, a peculiar experience -- a polemic that is at once watchable and repellent.

Chicago Tribune
Fast-moving shocker, but it's a dull shocker, so morally dead that it deadens you to watch it. After a while you couldn't care less if anyone is slaughtered or raped -- including the heroines.

Los Angeles Times
As has happened before in less extreme circumstances, filmmakers with purportedly serious intentions punish their viewers for watching their envelope-pushing depiction of sex on the screen by presenting it in the most profoundly negative context imaginable.

Slate
The filmmakers have separated themselves from all the emotions of filmmaking except anger.

Salon.com
Didactic, clumsily directed and abysmally acted, never lets go of its intellectualized approach long enough to deliver any real kinetic thrills.

Variety
This hard-core pic is a half-baked, punk-inflected porn odyssey masquerading as a movie worth seeing and talking about.
0
It's pornography of the most depressing sort.
