Storyline

A private detective is hired to find a missing stripper but the job turns complicated when everyone he questions ends up dead. From the mean streets of Los Angeles to the desolate desert of New Mexico, Cruz must contend with a brutal Russian Boxer, three brash LAPD detectives, an aged billionaire looking for the Big Bang, and the billionaire's stunningly gorgeous wife. The solution to the mystery will cost ten lives, net $30 million and just might explain - well - everything. Written by Anonymous

Candy for the senses
1 February 2011 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Right from the opening credits, the music and visuals seem to surround you in acidic euphoria.

This is a contemporary film noir with scientific and abstract overtones. Antonio Banderas is a private-I tasked with finding a woman, a typically classic theme; but mixed with a lot of modern physics. This isn't the first time it's been done, so it's no wonder people are finding parallels to other films and even claiming a ripoff. I can't say either way whether those claims are true.

The contemporary physics intertwined with the classic noir theme adds up to the kind of intrigue that I lust after as a moviegoer. Donnie Darko, Interstate 60, Angel Heart, The Ninth Gate, The Kovak Box -- One capable man on an adventure to solve a complex riddle whose questions and experiences become so convoluted as to begin to warrant an answer beyond the realm of known reality.

If, during moments when you have no idea what could possibly be coming next, you delight in that fact, finding them beyond delicious, then this movie is for you. That's not what everyone is looking for of course, which is probably why this movie isn't getting a proper theatrical release. Lowest common denominator Hollywood surefire profitmaker this is not.

Acting, writing, directing, and effects were perfect. I was disappointed in the wrap-up, as everyone else was, but I try not to get hung up on it. As they say, it's the journey that counts. This was definitely a worthwhile experience.
