Excellent movie

Don't get the negative reviews. This is the kind of movie I wish I could see at least once a year instead of most of what we get. I really question what is behind the critics giving this such a low rating and a movie like Les Mes, which was horrible top rating.

I am getting tired of reviews that are based on the critic's taste. It is meaningless. I much prefer Ebert's standard: did the film succeed at what the filmmaker intended? I would say this film is successful. The intent is lurid, certainly, the exposition is outrageous, and the themes as noir as you can get. But as a noir film about investigative reporting, I would say the film succeeds. I'd give it 3 stars.

I applaud your emphasizing the good. There WAS a freshness. I TOO was enthralled.

A tremendous job done by formidable actors. I was enthralled. There was a freshness brought by Daniels that I haven't seen in any film in quite a while. I was truly entertained and highly recommend this film. People don't often want to be shown the darker side of themselves. I applaud this creation.
