    Perhaps this is just not the style that I can appreciate but I expected something better from some reviews. I am increasingly more disappointed with David O. Russell's films since "Three Kings" which was my favorite. Too bad.

    Very well acted but perhaps overly long but remained riveting till the end. The dialogue and relationships felt very real. This is a unique film and quite good if you can withstand the title characters somewhat grating personality. This is of course, intentional and an essential element of her complexity, which makes this film absorbing.

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
