Stay

From Wikipedia:

"Reception

The film was a box office failure, with a domestic gross of $3,626,883 and a foreign gross of $4,715,249, making a total worldwide gross of $8,342,132, it didn't come close to making up for its estimated budget of $50,000,000.[2][3]

Critical reaction to Stay has been mixed. The film holds a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes[4] and 41 out of 100 on Metacritic.[5] Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 3½ stars out of four, saying, "The ending is an explanation, but not a solution. For a solution we have to think back through the whole film, and now the visual style becomes a guide. It is an illustration of the way the materials of life can be shaped for the purposes of the moment."[6] Peter Travers of Rolling Stone also praised the film, awarding it three stars out of four and saying, "Some people find this twisty and twisted psychological thriller arty and pretentious. I find it arty and provocative."[7]

James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave Stay 2½ stars out of four, calling it "interesting" but finding it "hard to recommend to anyone but the small cadre of David Lynch devotees who will inhale anything with a whiff of similarity to their favorite auteur's scent."[8] Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a "C", praising the "profuse imagery" but ultimately feeling it to be "a tepid film" with "flat characters" and "anchorless performances".[9] Lou Lumenick of the New York Post panned the film, calling it "a trite, incoherent and pretentious bomb."[5]"




I'd say it was better than I could stand.




P.S. What happened to the 'Prevew the entry' function?
