Combustible Celluloid

The movie has a hazy, sleepy, and sad look that reminded me (favorably) of Chinatown. Brilliant.

Cincinnati Enquirer

Mr. Benton's smart script, co-written with Richard Russo, allows the fine cast to explore honor, betrayal and desire among people who have lived long enough to know who they really are.

A slow moving mystery film that won't appeal to all audiences. It's so good to see this cast working together that you're willing to forgive the film's little shortcomings.

As noir, Twilight is a class act.

This smart neo-noir is pretty enjoyable, but it's too dumb for its own good.

Director Robert Benton and cowriter Richard Russo have embellished the script with witty repartee that bears comparison with the best of Chandler and Hammett.

The story may be only half-finished, but the stars sure aren't.

Twilight, though set in contemporary L.A., has a nostalgic aura. It doesn't rush its story, allowing the viewer to get to know its protagonists as it ambles along.

The film makes it a pleasure to watch the main characters -- played by Newman, Susan Sarandon, Gene Hackman and James Garner -- sparring in style.

Part of Twilight's charm is the way it reconfigures Rio Bravo, El Dorado, and Rio Lobo in the process of making its own discoveries, not so much imitating or appropriating the earlier films as applying their strategies to goals quite alien to Hawks.

Though the mystery doesn't need nearly that long to unravel, from moment to moment, the performances are all so good that it's easy to overlook the plot's flimsiness.
