Summary: Ouch, my brain
Strong performances by pretty much the entire cast cannot save this film from the sucking black hole that is its script. It goes on, and on, and on, and all the while you're thinking "No one this stupid could have gotten away with this for so long", and just when you're still thinking that, WHAMMO the movie ends abruptly. I wonder if they ran out of film stock or something. This is probably best watched as a rental, in short bursts over a period of several days.

Summary: Riveting, surprising
You never know what comes next. You never know what trick will be pulled out next. You will be left disturbed. The end is a little strange and leaves you wanting closure, though.
