There's a murky tenuous balance between reality and fiction; particularly when it involves a beautiful young woman, murder, a powerful politico, a missing fortune and suicide. A passionate filmmaker creating a film based upon a true crime casts an unknown mysterious young woman bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. Unsuspectingly, he finds himself drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, obsessed with the woman, the crime, her possibly notorious past and the disturbing complexity between art and truth. From the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina to Verona, Rome and London, new truths are revealed and clues to other crimes and passions, darker and even more complex are uncovered.

A Long Time Coming
20 August 2019 | by Easygoer10See all my reviews

The first Monte Hellman I saw is his most famous, "Two Lane Blacktop" when it came out in 1971. I think everyone from that film is dead, except for James Taylor, who played "The Driver". That was a brilliant film. This one, however, is not quite the same. I do want to point out Shannon Sossamon is cast in this. I think she is a very underrated actress. She is beautiful as well, reminds me of Nastassja Kinski, but doesn't have Ms. Kinski's unique eyes. This film syarts out good, but peters out, unfortunately. It is worth a watch.
