Ask the Dust Reviews
Los Angeles during the Great Depression is fascinating and well done. I find the economics also enjoyable, where a nickel buys a cup of coffee, and rent is $10 a month. If nothing else, the movie gives us a clear glimpse of what things might have been like in that era.
I don't think the chemistry between the two was quite right... the sparring sure fit, but it never felt like a smoldering going on behind those mean words. Perhaps Hayek has too strong of a sex appeal and simply outmatches Colin.... dunno, that's one for the ladies to answer.
This should have some appeal to writers and romantics, but it's a slow starter and nothing earth shattering. Quaking, yes... but not shattering. (Inside movie joke)

Pretty bad movie. It looks good and Salma Hayek gets naked. Thos are the only two decent things I can write about this flick. I love Colin Ferrell but he was horrible and so was the part. Hayek is busty and mexican as ever. Ummmm, yep, this one was shit. Boring and tried really hard to be deep.
