|Universal Pictures | Release Date: February 21, 2003||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
One of those hyper-articulate messes which inspire awe and a kind of nauseated pity. [3 March 2003, p. 94]
Unlike "Dead Man Walking" and many honorable dramas before it, "David Gale" has nothing coherent to say about capital punishment, or anything else. It's a dead film lurching.
The secrets of the plot must remain unrevealed by me, so that you can be offended by them yourself, but let it be said this movie is about as corrupt, intellectually bankrupt and morally dishonest as it could possibly be without David Gale actually hiring himself out as a joker at the court of Saddam Hussein.
