Good Efficient Butchery review: ” …the pace is almost glacial and story elements are completely illogical […] and in the fact that the primary villain’s identity is made clear much too early. The finale, which goes on forever… is terribly-handled, never suspenseful, and anti-climactic in the extreme.”
Moon in the Gutter review: “Framed immaculately and photographed with the skill only a true master could bring to the screen, Windows is a visual triumph. Sadly, the look of Windows can’t save it from its stale storyline, poor plotting and wooden dialogue.”
