  1. The star-crossed love story that takes up most of the movie-within-the-movie is strangely compelling, and Douglas gives a believable, often powerful performance as a man in the process of discovering the karmic ripple effect of a closed-off life.
  2. The movie is therefore better than it ought to be, but without Douglas, it ought not to be at all
  3. Douglas does his best acting while watching and reacting to what he sees on screen. If this ends up being his cinematic swan song, it will not have been a bad way to go.

    Can we redeem the past with good works in the present? Can a movie that takes on these deep questions be captivating, entertaining and inspiring
