Time Out says

Stopkewich won plaudits for her necrophile Kissed, but this second outing, based on a novel by Laura Kasischke, plays more like softcore titillation masquerading as arty psycho-drama. Working at a motel in the middle of nowhere, Leila takes to selling herself to the business travellers who make up the clientele. This seems to be more out of boredom than anything else, although she takes a particular shine to the guy who beats her up. We're asked to suffer a grimly predictable chain of events, a numb non-performance from Parker, and an offensively pat psychological explanation for all this trash.
