Chris O'Brien, devoted Catholic and rookie cop with LAPD, is assigned to partner with the hard-edged, street-smart Nora Hugosian. A serial killer is loose, and all the victims are low-life guys whom Nora has dealt with. So, when the tire tracks of a police car are found at a murder scene, she's the prime suspect of internal affairs investigator Simon Hertzel. Chris and Nora start an affair, but meanwhile he has suspicions about her. Should he start his own investigation, which would be an act of betrayal, or trust her, as his partner and his lover? When a witness i.d.'s Nora's former partner, Michael Clemence, as the killer, Nora gives Mike an alibi, and things get complicated. Written by
Typical Bad Cop/Good Cop flick that is saved by Gershon.
"Black and White", like Traci Lords' "Exramarital," the bachelor party turned deadly "Stag," and the Alyssa Milano clunker "Below Utopia" (or "Body Count" as it says on video) before it, premiered on HBO as if it was too bad for theatres. Unlike the other three though, "Black and White" is a decent movie. Gina Gershon stars as a "bad cop" who may be on a killing spree as well as fighting the law. "Dazed and Confused" star Rory Chochrane, who is a good Catholic boy, is teamed with her. Gershon's character has been seen before, possibly as Katherine Martell in "Basic Instict." But with the strong performance from Gershon, she seems more real.
Gershon is an immensely talented and underrated actress. Thanks to her "Black and White" is worthy of a look. 2 aND a HaLF STaRs OuT oF FoUR.
