Storyline

A murky tale. A child goes missing in West Yorkshire, one of several over ten years; the police find a patsy, an acquaintance of Michael, a blood simple man serving a life sentence for another girl's death. Michael's mother asks John Piggott, a burned-out solicitor, to look into her son's conviction; Piggott finds injustices in current and past cases. Maurice Jobson, part of a group of corrupt cops, searches for the missing girl, involves a medium, finds nothing, leans hard on Piggott, and may be tiring of the sham. He's warned off going soft. Is there moral strength anywhere capable of facing down the cabal? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Phase Three:Dotting All Of The I's & Crossing All Of The T's
8 April 2010 | by druid333-2See all my reviews

It is now three years since The West Yorkshire Ripper has been (allegedly)caught & disposed from society,but things are no better for the citizens of West Yorkshire. Another disappearance of a young girl has been duly noted. This time,Sgt.Major,Maurice Johnson is on the case to find out just who is the (so called)ripper. This time,he's assisted (against his knowledge)by a sleazy lawyer,named John Piggott,as well as a "New Agey" clairvoyant,figure into it,as well as a wrongly accused,mildly retarded young man falsely accused of the original set of murders,and a mysterious young man just released from prison who is just referred to as B.J. Other elements (rampant police corruption,organized crime,political graft) figure into this to make this final chapter in a triptych a true nail biter,to keep you guessing until the very end. Anand Tucker (Hillary & Jackie,Shopgirl)directs from a screenplay written by Tony Grisoni,adapted from the novel by David Peace. The moody wide screen cinematography is by David Higgs,with precise editing by Trevor Waite. David Morrissey returns as Maurice Jobson,with Warren Clarke,as Bill Molloy,Lisa Howard as Judith Jobson,Sean Bean as John Dawson,and rounding out the rest of the cast (among others)is Chris Walker,Shawn Dooley,Jim Carter,Mark Addy,David Mayes & Robert Sheehan. Not rated by the MPAA,but contains outbursts of strong language,adult content,gruesome images,including brutal police interrogation scenes & violence,as well as much smoking of tobacco & marijuana & drinking of alcohol
