Reviews

The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
Manages to be visually arresting, packed with geeky allusions to everything from Raymond Chandler to "Blue Velvet."
90
Film Threat - Unnamed
With brilliant dialogue out of the 1940s and graceful visuals that add depth to the dark comedy, Johnson debuts with a smart, self-assured feature that portrays adolescence like no other film has.

The New Yorker - David Denby
All in all, this twerpy little movie is one of the most entertaining pictures to be released so far this year.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
The mean streets don't get any nastier than the high school parking lots in this cool-crafted mystery.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
"Sensational" is the word for Joseph Gordon-Levitt (equally striking in Mysterious Skin), who stars as Brendan, the teen outsider who becomes a budding Bogart.
