Critics reviews

[The protagonist is] after “passion” but doesn’t seem to know how or where to find it—or even what it means. MIDNIGHT hinges on its design elements (setting, props, makeup); their strangeness grounds the film and provides its main interest. Otherwise, it’s quite static and stage-bound in its style.
