Lady Justice is Surely Blind
14 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film tells a great tale about a man who has an insatiable sexual appetite that can never be quenched, even in the throes of big trouble with the law. Ultimately, power, money and standing all go a long ways into how people are handled within our court system.

If you have riches, you can escape the most inescapable criminal acts. If you're poor, forget it. Our system is badly broken and filled with corruption.

Lady Justice is blind on both sides...innocent and guilty alike. The courts have a hard time getting it right...money just adds to the problem.

Gerard Depardieu had a lot of guts taking on this roll and did a fantastic job of expressing his emotion through his eyes. He occasionally stares into the camera, giving the viewer a deeper view into his manic behavior.

A special nod to Jacqueline Bisset for her terrific role as the enabling wife. She seemed more like a mother than a wife to Depardieu, protecting him to protect herself.

A very highly recommended film.

Oh, by the way....the most telling of the "Guilty before innocent" sentiment in the USA was the treatment of the perp based alone on an accusation. "You don't like the cuffs? Too bad asshole." Is a sad commentary on the attitudes of our law enforcement officials.
