well worth renting
1 January 2000 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Sure there are some things about this one I didn't like (Emma Thompson's tortured opening lines; how the central murder could possibly have been planned; lack of atmosphere considering it was shot in New Orleans) but overall it was a real video find. Hal Holbrook's caustic brush-off of Rickman is a classic. Parents beware, though, this is a solid, solid R.
