Facing up to it
9 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

A movie with the 50s quality of straightforward drama, highlighted by crime and youthful rebellion. No particular noteworthy acting performances, just a good film noir story in the style of the era. A doctor specializing in plastic surgery is involved after the fact in a murder triangle involving his son and then blackmailed by the other criminal. As for the police people, sometimes its refreshing to see them as simply normal, uncomplicated folk, the good guys, not psychological caricatures. (Not really refreshing--this is simply old vs. new.) Great twist at the end; indeed, I like this one better than Nick Cage's pompous Face/Off.
