No excerpt available.
Boilerplate noir all the way, from the femme fatale to the hard-boiled voiceover.
Audience Reviews for Brown's Requiem
Hasn't cracked the basic problem of transforming the source material into a really compelling slice of cinema.
A very average adaptation of Ellroy's novel, the film threw me a bit by being set in modern day rather than Ellroy's customary 50's Hollywood. This film is a decent effort, but still left me wanting the period feel that the material deserved. Worth a rental.
