One of the most disjointed films I have seen. It almost seems like the had material here for three or four distinct movies. One was a government conspiracy style movie. The second was a traditional "cop investigates a murder and falls in love with one of the people he meets" movie. The third was how wealth and corrupt relationships and twists reality into a ball of twine.
One positive was the photography. Nice cinematic shots of cities and other scenes.
