Its Rotten Tomatoes score is a robust 85% positive. The Los Angeles Times called it “Richly evocative, excessively foot-fetishizing, inescapably terrifying and unexpectedly poignant movie.”
New York Magazine wrote: “It’s the most fun the director seems to have had in years, but it’s also, oddly, his most compassionate picture in more than a decade.”
