Frank always used to say, "Tell your story walkin', pal." He was more philosophical than your average gumshoe, but he liked to do his talkin' on the move, so here's how it all went down. I got somethin' wrong with my head. That's the first thing to know.
It's like having glass in the brain. I can't stop pickin' things apart... twistin' 'em around, reassembling 'em. Words and sounds, especially. It's like an itch that has to be scratched.

I went into this not expecting much but Edward Norton gave till it hurt.
Overall, this was a great movie with some amazing performances by Norton and his fantastic ensemble cast. So well acted by such fine actors.
It's a very good murder mystery. That classic gum shoe style was done perfectly.
I love the art direction. He painted a great picture of 50s style New York.
And the music was stellar. Those jazz numbers really blended in perfectly with the atmosphere. Then I had that one piece of music made by Thom Yorke of Radiohead (you'll know it once you hear).
This was a really great movie.
