Towne has acres of plot here, lashings of it, plot so complicated and so intricate that if you're not clenched to follow every second of it, you're lost. The sheer details of what he has created finally engulf Towne's handsome trio.

Towne has a tremendous gift for creating dialogue that is concise, expressive and distinctive without advertising its own cleverness, and ''Tequila Sunrise'' is worth seeing just to be heard.

Sexy and intelligent is an irresistible combination, and "Tequila Sunrise" is the sexiest, most intelligent Hollywood movie in a long time.

Writer/director Robert Towne has done better work, as scriptwriter on classic movies such as Chinatown, for example, but this thriller is still an extremely entertaining illustration of his work.

The best parts of Tequila Sunrise are so very good that you wish they could be in a more sustained movie.

Witty, seductive and unpredictable, Tequila Sunrise is so arresting that it demands to be seen again even before it is over.

There's not much kick in this cocktail, despite its mix of quality ingredients.

It turns out to resemble little more than a very sophisticated but slow and soggy episode of "Miami Vice" set in LA-LA land.

Who says looks aren't everything? They are in this picture.

There is nothing at all happening in Tequila Sunrise but a lot of vacuous drama about the loyalty between two high school buddies and the luminous beauty who must decide between them.

Muddled thriller.
April 6, 2009
A project with the ingredients for greatness that nonetheless came out half-baked.
June 24, 2006
The set-up has the precision of fine needlepoint, picking out the plot outline before embroidering it with a complex pattern of interwoven relationships.
