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.

Writer-director Robert Benton's storyline in Twilight is routine, just another Hollywood cops 'n' robbers saga tinged with film noirish elements. But the cast is unique for a 1990s thriller.

At a slim 94 minutes, there's a lot of stuff that's packed into an awfully small package. Still, the chance to see Newman, Sarandon and Hackman working together is worth a cramp or two.

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

A meditative, unusually rewarding little flick.

Twilight is as close to a perfect film as I've seen in a long while.

Tough to knock a movie with these three performers on display.

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.

It's hard to resist a movie with great actors like Paul Newman, Gene Hackman, Susan Sarandon and James Garner. But Twilight almost makes you want to.

While the movie is often unconvincing and painfully slow, it offers valuable insights into the cares of older people who no longer are given the opportunity for career adventure and who therefore must rely on themselves to make their own fun.

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.

Twilight sometimes lacks the tension or energy of a good thriller, but its reflective mood and poignancy more than compensate.
