Though [Rains is] strong in The Fixer, willing to push his character's initially endearing curiousity into aggressive and stubborn places and show real emotional confusion in a foreign land, the picture is otherwise a mixed bag.

The movie - at first scrappy and strange but an increasingly tough sit as it goes - never fixes its gaze on any singularly compelling idea.

Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless.

Nothing that follows Burn Country's jarring opening scene, which drops us without warning into an ongoing performance of an avant-garde play, quite lives up to its audacious intensity and strangeness.

Rains... brings such a sense of purpose to the part that the movie never goes slack.

For a film that warns against believing in a mirage, Burn Country seems all too comfortable perpetuating one.

More of an interesting thesis than a compelling drama, but it's anchored by Rains' sturdy performance as a man whose open-minded curiosity about his new home disengages his natural wariness, for both better and worse.

Sitaru effortlessly balances the demands of the thriller genre with careful characterizations and a sympathetic, never-judgmental look at poverty and crime.

Despite some atmospheric touches, the film doesn't offer much meaningful insight into the struggle of a man trying desperately to assimilate into a new culture.

There's plenty of intelligence and atmosphere in play here - Adam Newport-Berra's fluid, textured cinematography is a standout, and the performances, especially Rains' charismatic portrait of someone scarred yet innocent, are engaging.
