Hartley's dialogue has a crisp, sardonic, back-and-forth quality, as if characters were bargaining over information and logic.

It's as close to an adding-up as can be expected from any thrifty trilogy spread out over three decades, but surely a testament to enduring indie integrity.

The movie doesn't exactly go anywhere. Or rather, it dithers around, and then, just as things start to get interesting, it ends.

Smart writing and committed actors make up for the microscopic budget. You don't need to have seen the previous two films to enjoy "Ned Rifle," but it definitely helps.

[It] might not sound entertaining, yet when the writer-director is on his game, as he is in "Ned Rifle," the effect is bizarre black comedy that is designed to set you thinking about what his satire is really saying.

Ned Rifle finds a comfortable place between Henry Fool's low-key sensibilities and Fay Grim's conspiratorial plotting.

Hartley is at his Hartleyest here, meaning, among other things, that a fair chunk of the dialogue sounds like a pronouncement, aimed as much at the viewer as it is at another character.

As much as I generally enjoy revisiting Hartley's world, there's a touch of half-baked off-off-Broadway theater about Ned Rifle.

Like the best of Hartley's work ("Fool," "Trust," "Simple Men"), "Ned" leaves behind little bits of wisdom.

The movie should resonate for fans, as it's filled to the brim with Hartley's signature dry and carefully crafted dialogue.

At its worst, "Ned Rifle" is a self-involved movie about self-involved people. When it clicks, though, we're in a pared-down moral universe that carries unsettling echoes of our own.

For all the evident despair, Hartley can't repress his love of cinema; the comic dialogue sings and many of the images have a fragile beauty.
