Despite its pluses, despite trying to do all the right things, Twilight comes up lacking in both energy and plot, two areas that no noir, geezer or otherwise, can afford to be caught short in.

The movie's story is too obvious in its message, and too absurd in its plotting.

Whenever Newman, Sarandon and Hackman are in the same scene, there's something like 107 years of film-acting is up there on the screen, and it shows.

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.

This is a B-movie screenplay with an A-level cast and crew.

Writer-director Robert Benton obviously intended to paint this neo-noir in somber tones, but he's succeeded beyond what's good for his movie.

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.

A fascinating, elegantly plotted yarn that offers a haunting perspective on who we seem to be, who we are and what really counts.

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