...en riktigt bra thriller väl värd att se.
Acted to perfection with more twists than you can shake a stick at.
...the movie industry, corrupt cops, tabloid journalism, gangsters and sexual obsessions of every stripe are woven into a dreamy vision of a poisonous but achingly irresistible city of the mind.
Despite Crowe, Pearce and Spacey, it may be Basinger who gives the film's best performance. Her speech to Exley, about how she sees Bud White, is a monologue as simple as it is touching.
...is a throwback in nearly every way: in setting, in style, in performance, in storytelling.
