"...[The film] retains a profound kinetic charge..."

4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he unusual focus on class conflict still feels fresh and the devastating conclusion is unforgettable."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2011
"The storytelling is vivid, lurid, cynical and at times almost grotesque in its violence."
