“Over and above the furious – and ultimately painfully tender – drama, Perry achieves something of a new, grand version of his own cinematic music.” – The New Yorker

“Moss’ oscillating, energy-devouring performance and the real-time composition of Perry’s scenes make it almost impossible to look away.” – New York Magazine

“Absorbing… Once you’re in there, you go with it. Elisabeth Moss’ commitment, and the burnished bravura of her talent, pull you through.” – Variety
