Bitter Circle is a fast-moving film noir crime drama. Seductive narration pulls you into the story and events that follow lead you to believe what may not be true. Money and morals drive the plot through unexpected twists and turns that end in surprising outcomes. The story centers around a guilt-ridden undercover cop whose marriage has fallen apart, leaving him lost and alone to deal with his despair. The only person he feels he can talk to is a prostitute he is trying to help. They have an emotional bond formed from pain and suffering and through her we get insight to his overwhelming guilt. The traumatic day that ruined his life is revealed slowly in emotionally gripping replayed scenes. Fine acting by a basically unknown cast. A compelling movie that probes the emotional costs to those involved in fighting crime.
