We gave it a B

A New Yorker (Tim Robbins), driven crazy by car alarms that interrupt the cultured life he leads with his cellist wife (Bridget Moynahan), becomes a car-vandalizing vigilante. The cops arrest him, the bombastic Giuliani-esque mayor (William Hurt) gets huffy, and the whole story shrieks to a climax that’s comically waah-waah-waah in its neurotic agitation. As a follow-up to his striking 2002 directorial debut, The Believer, this second obsessive study in fanaticism by writer-director Henry Bean has its own delirious integrity and outsider-art charm. B
