‘Transsiberian starts in neutral, taking the time to introduce its characters, and then goes from second into high like greased lightning. I was a little surprised to notice how thoroughly it wound me up. This is a good one.’
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
‘Has terrific Siberian location work, a carefully constructed atmosphere of creeping dread and an outstanding performance by Emily Mortimer.’
‘"Transsiberian" is the quintessence of what critic Judith Crist affectionately refers to as a movie-movie: a picture that breathes entertainment through every celluloid sprocket hole while seeming, without affect or pomposity, to encapsulate the entirety of film history.’
Los Angeles Times
FIVE MINUTES, MR. WELLES
Directed by and starring Vincent D'Onofrio
