    A + for Spacey's charactar & nice texture and local flavour in the film.

    The atmosphere is wonderful. John Cusack's usual well-nuanced style fit right in, ironically, as the outsider looking in. The problem is the length of the film; even though there were so many true-life characters (some playing themselves), you have to cut something. And, a little Chablis goes a long way. Eastwood's daughter could have been much worse.

    That was a very enjoyable court drama movie. Clint Eastwood did very well there. I watched it half way through reading the book. It shows how life mixes facts and spiritual beliefs. The movie is not action packed obviously so for people with pattention issues, this is not for you: you have to listen, you have to concentrate to read between the lines, you have to follow the path.

The movie is not action packed obviously so for people with pattention issues, this is not for you: you have to listen, you have to concentrate to read between the lines, you have to follow the path. It requires a worthy effort to keep track of the event which is required for movies like "Once upon a time in America", "Once upon a time in the West", "The good, the bad and the ugly" and not necessary for most of the most recent movies.

    The film is consummately professional but phlegmatic, a slow fizzle.
  2. Listless, disjointed and disconnected, this meandering two-hour, 32-minute exercise in futility will fascinate no one who doesn't have a blood relation among the cast or crew.

    Like the South, the movie is sumptuous and somnolent.
