Time Out says

It’s hard to say who suffers—or perpetrates—the greatest indignities in this blood-soaked mess: Cuba Gooding Jr. (who still has Boat Trip, Snow Dogs and Radio to live down), Helen Mirren (she’s no lady—she’s a Dame) or Stephen Dorff (whose donger may qualify for SAG). Gooding and Mirren are assassins, lovers—and stepson and stepmother; Dorff a priapic crime boss. The incestuous couple lams it with Dorff’s pregnant wife, intersecting with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Macy Gray and Mo’Nique along the way. Childhood traumas are revealed, but it’s Lee Daniels’s desperate attempts at daring that will leave you quaking with PTSD. (Opens Fri; Click here for venues.) — Melissa Anderson
