Film Comment - 05/01/1992

Chicago Sun-Times - 09/04/1992
"...Brooding, lonely....Paul Schraderhas been telling this story in one way or another, but never with more humanity than this time..."
Empire - 03/01/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Paul Schrader's familiar preoccupations -- religion; male insecurity; the seamier side of modern life; glistening, moody filmmaking -- are lovingly coaxed out of this, his most underrated film."

Plot Synopsis:
