Recovery of hidden cash excites violent rivalries and differences
20 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Midnight Crossing" (1989) is a neo-noir, one that critic John Grant missed in his huge list. The movie moves rather slowly for its first half, without much action. Then in the second half when the action cuts in, it's replete with twists, shifts in view, double crosses violence and deception. Daniel J. Travanti is a navy man who was part of a scheme that hid money in 1959 on an island 35 miles from Cuba. Travanti's employee, Kim Cattrall, is married to John Laughlin who makes a business out of his sailing vessel. With Cattrall providing pressure, Travanti recruits Laughlin and the boat for a trip to the island to get the money. The sightless Faye Dunaway is on board too. She's Travanti's wife and contends with glaucoma. It all seems peaceful enough, but dangers lurk just beneath the surface. Ned Beatty plays a part in a sub-plot when he overhears what the loose-lipped Travanti is up to.

To some extent, the story left me wondering exactly who knew what and when they knew it. Some parts of the script confused me, and I still haven't figured them out, if they can be figured out. The story is not told smoothly, part of that being some discomfort in the acting, another part being scenes dragged out that have no real impact.
