In a film that's carefully crafted but also airless and overcalculated, Mos Def walks away with every scene he's in because we're never sure what his character is up to, and we're never told.
Worth seeing for Bacon's lived-in minimalist purgatory, but the movie soft-pedals the nature of the desires he's at war with: the fact that they will never go away.

A stunning, difficult film.
Bacon is a strong and subtle actor, something that is often said but insufficiently appreciated. Here he employs all of his art.
