A thought provoking & highly stylish 'reporter as sleuth' film
8 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

What a refreshing movie. The story is intelligent, the performances are engaging, there's an excellent star turn by Christopher Plummer. Robert Wisden (in the lead) plays a jaded reporter with a sense of perception we haven't seen in that tired role for a long while.

The film is sort of like CHINATOWN crossed with DIVA.
