Storyline

In Corinth, a dying town 15 miles from Pittsburg: One evening, a Japanese businessman, who wanted to tear down the closed iron mills to build an amusement park, is found half dead in his mill. Bellboy Barry admits to have done it - in self defense. Chief Ruhle interrogates him and Sugito's young wife and business partners, but it takes a while, until he gets through the maze of apparently contradictory statements. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A muddled, self-indulgent film
7 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Iron Maze" has an intriguing script: the story of an attempted murder is unraveled through a series of conflicting flashbacks. Sadly, this script has been poorly directed, poorly photographed and poorly acted. The result is a muddled, unpleasant and self-indulgent film. Jeff Fahey is typically obnoxious, while Bridget Fonda looks pretty and enigmatic, but she doesn't really have to act to achieve those qualities; her actual performance is closer to a zombie than a living human being. And J.T. Walsh plays (surprise!) an officer of the law. The movie also has xenophobic political implications ("those evil Japanese!"), which it tries to reverse in the final scene. (*1/2)
