Local politics in all its sleazy beauty
7 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The setting, the characters, the music - everything just oozes old South Florida in every minute of this gem of a film. Director/writer Victor Nunez's pace seems easy and slow, but it is charged with an energy that keeps growing and growing, and the effect is flat out scary real life. Ed Harris is marvelous as a reporter who refuses to stay trapped in slimy local developer/politician Richard Jordan's plans to become governor. Blair Brown is gorgeous and stalwart as the woman Harris loves who opposes Jordan's development plans, even as her fellow activists are coerced into dropping out, one by one. Harris, Brown and Jordan are at their peak here. Every performance in the film is dead on, and yes, local politics can be downright nasty.
