  • 1 star "Music overpowers the whole thing, poor writing, poor casting, and seems to try and rely on sex scenes to keep interest."
  • 4 stars "Great show but Dustin Hoffman might be the worst actor ever. And terrible choice for this part."
  • 5 stars "Wow can't stop binging on this well performed and beautiful movie. Finally a movie of exquisite taste. Cheers!"
