Gorky Park is well done and unique amid the films of its day. While certainly made with the Cold War as its backdrop, the film never resorts to the Cold War clichés of the time.

William Hurt is superb as a Moscow militia detective caught between his desires to be simply a good cop and the unfathomable motives of the secret Soviet government, all complicated by an unexpected love for Joanna Pacula.

Neither Dennis Potter's screenplay nor the heavyweight cast can raise this adaptation of Martin Cruz Smith's best-selling spy novel above the ordinary.

By the end of Gorky Park, we realize that it's not the solution that matters, but what the case itself forced the people to discover about themselves.

This is pretty gripping, if somewhat formulaic, stuff.

It remains a taut, clever thriller throughout, with Mr. Apted's direction establishing its intensity immediately and sustaining it well.

Hopelessly dated and morose -- and much is lost from the bestselling novel.
