Another Mocky's botched job.
15 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Jean -Pierre Mocky has made a lot of movies ;few gained critical acclaim and few (if any) were commercial successes.

Although an adaptation of an American novel,the movie is Frenchie to the core.It has ,mainly in its first part a crude dialog ,using the word "baiser" (=f...)in almost every line.

This film does nothing but state the obvious:a newspaper which wants to tell the truth all the truth and nothing but the truth is a hackneyed subject;and Mocky treats his subject like a bull in a china shop.Besides ,he cannot even enhance the all-star male cast (Londsdale,Serrault,Constantin...) the production generously bestowed on him;one should add that the female cast is rather poor (Sylvia "Emmanuelle" Krystel is very bad but one can see her swim in the nude in her pool).

From time to time Mocky makes a good work ("l'albatros" is probably the most interesting) but they are oases in the desert of a burned out career.
