Review For anyone who dreams of winning an Academy Award, consider the fate of poor Mira Sorvino. Five years after snagging Hollywood's most coveted prize and gaining the world's attention for her wonderful performance in "Mighty Aphrodite," Mira Sorvino can now be seen on-screen in the obscure, dreadful "Too Tired to Die"...A few well-known actors including Ben Gazzara, Jeffrey Wright and Aida Turturro turn up in hokey hipster roles which serve no purpose except to fatten their respective bank accounts for quickie work. Asian film star Takeshi Kaneshiro ("Chungking Express") is the nominal star, offering none of the charisma evident in his Asian-based flicks..."Too Tired to Die" is a mess, pure and simple. At a time when scores of great films are languishing without a distributor, it is outrageous for this junk to find its way into the theaters.

Review A quirky little cross-cultural item, "Too Tired to Die" is a cinephile's wet dream, a pop artifact that trades in equal measures of contempo Asian rootlessness, European art-film doodlings and downtown New York hipsterism. A colorful cast and a stream of eclectic references and influences will keep buffs amused, making this a tasty offering for fests and highly specialized urban bookings, but far too inside and ephemeral for wider play...Pointedly polyglot cast meshes together surprisingly well, with each actor retaining his or her own individuality in the melting-pot context. Tech contributions are outstanding for such a low-budget affair, with lenser Jim Denault making his stars look exceptionally glamorous and bringing the downtown locations to vibrant, colorful life.
