What a great movie
30 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Welcome to David Lean's world, a parallel universe where nuance, subtlety and personal interpretation co-exist perfectly. In this world Satan's lawyers are cunning winners, but really are losers. The strange weaving of the courtroom scenes are actually brilliant and subtle.

Situations arise and disappear like zephyrs.The film also succeeds by adding a new layer to a typical con film. It makes its incredibly clever and devious real devil. A lot of films portray the protagonist as a flawed man that works everything out so perfectly and executes every minute detail without a single issue, so much so that they are more of a gimmick than an actual character. The character of Luke is truly human, complete with all of his inner turmoil and realistic flaws. Throughout the film he grows more and more troubled as the lawyers get closer and closer to him. We see a very human transformation that is as touching as it is fascinating. By the end of the film we love this character not because he is a clever genius, but because he is human.

Performance-Wise: Mr. McDowell gives a mesmerizing performance as the devil.

This movie would be my first recommendation for movies based on real life because it's so suspenseful, entertaining, comedic, and fun to watch.
