An amusingly caustic, straight-up serving of film noir staples spiced with star charisma.

Bob Rafelson sends this movie out like a hissing flare from the island of the nearly-forgotten, and if justice had prevailed, moviegoers would have answered the call.

The director benefits from a powerhouse duo in Nicholson and Caine. It's like watching two cats fight for the same mouse, because both characters are corrupted to the bone.

It's a morality play, really, but dripping with humid sex and violence.

Blood & Wine is rewarding for its performances and the material it explores, but ultimately it's messy.

Bob Rafelson uses the themes of greed, lust and betrayal coupled with riveting ingredients to bring an emotionally satisfying, biting thriller.

The movie's own payoff is compelling enough, but the project has a weightless feel that limits involvement. Better you give it an hour-and-a-half on video someday, surrounded by wine and snacks.
