The movie Mad City wanted to be
3 March 2003 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Excellent performances and a worthwhile script mean that Murder Live! finally achieves what Mad City and Mistrial between them failed to do. It's refreshing to see satire handled without the sledgehammer subtlety of those efforts. One can only hope that this gem receives a much overdue release on DVD.
