Gorky Park Reviews

October 23, 2014
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 clichs of the time.

An uneven but fascinating murder mystery.

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.

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.
