Murder by Numbers Reviews
Cassie Mayweather is a detective that has had a troubled past and too many abusive men cases to mentally handle. She has a hard time connecting with people, especially her new partner. When they are assigned a murder case that seems to revolve around some over privileged high school students, her department feels she cracked. Will she be able to solve the case, or is Cassie in the middle of a mental breakdown that will lead to her destroying this case before it begins?
"I've become too fond of my own ass to do something that stupid."
Barbet Schroeder, director of Barfly, Single White Female, Desperate Measure, Kiss of Death, Before and After, and the upcoming Amnesia, delivers Murder by Numbers. The storyline for this picture is very interesting, contains some unique elements, and unfolds very well. The acting in this movie was way better than I anticipated and the cast includes Sandra Bullock, Ryan Gosling, Michael Pitt, Ben Chaplin, Agnes Bruckner, and Chris Penn.
"What are you doing?"
"It's called sex. It's fun. You should try it."
I remember when this came out but had no idea Ryan Gosling and Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire) were in this picture. I found this on Netflix and made the previously referenced discovery regarding the cast and decided to give it a shot. Overall, this is an above average crime drama due to the great character development and portrayal. I recommend seeing this but likely wouldn't add it to my DVD collection.
"She pees standing up, that one."
