Newsweek writes, “[the film is]” a consistently intelligent, morally thoughtful and often beautiful picture” and Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 93% approval rating.  The Washington Post writes, “[it] may have the body of an action film, but it has the soul of an art-house drama and the brains of a political thriller.”
