"...Buscemi crafts a tantalizing character study that swings from hilarious to harrowing without losing its agile footing..." Rolling Stone "...[Buscemi] creates the finest role of his career....So deft, funny, and light-handed it may not be until the film's shattering final image that you realize you've been wathcing one of the most lived-in portraits of an alcoholic ever made..." -- Rating: A Entertainment Weekly "...Buscemi poignantly conveys the dead-end nature of the lives on display without condescension....Buscemi has come out on top..."Variety "...The film is laced with the kinds of performances and scenes that marked the early work of John Cassavetes....Buscemi also got from himself a terrific performance..."
