Mulholland Falls is a visually stunning film. The sets and costumes are so accurate they verge on the edge of obsession and provide a fantastic backdrop for the film's plot.
Slightly on the negative side though, the actually storyline is pretty pedestrian and although it ticks along nicely enough it doesn't have that vital hook to really capture the audience and get them caught up it in all.
Although I wouldn't call the cast "all star" by any stretch of the imagination, it's one of those films at which you are constantly recognising actor after actor, and then try to spend the next few minutes racking your brain to remember where you've seen him before. "Oh look, it's thingy from that other film.....um thingy!" is a repeated phrase!
Nick Nolte can play the gravelled voiced hard cop as well as any and he gives another fine turn here. Well supported by two of the Reservoir Dogs, Michael Madsen and Christopher Penn and in particular, special mention to the other member of the squad, Chazz Palminteri who gives as fine performance as Nolte's partner.
As I say plenty of other faces to recognise including Andrew McCarthy, John Malkovich and Rob Lowe.
For a huge slice of 50's nostalgia then you really can't beat it. Classic cars, superb suits and hats and a real feel for the beginning of the Cold War suspicion that was starting to run through all aspects of American life.

Mulholland Falls is directed by Lee Tamahori and written by Pete Dexter. It stars Nick Nolte, Chazz Palminteri, Melanie Griffith, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Jennifer Connelly, Treat Williams, John Malkovich, Bruce Dern and Andrew McCarthy. Music is by Dave Grusin and cinematography by Haskell Wexler.

1950s Los Angeles and four unorthodox detectives led by Maxwell Hoover (Nolte) are called in to investigate the death of a young woman found crushed at a construction site. The woman is revealed to be an aspiring actress who had recently had a relationship with the married Hoover. Can is open, and worms everywhere, and following those worms leads Hoover down murky avenues...

It's the almost nearly great neo-noir movie, everything looks right in principal, it has a strongly assembled cast, the 50s visuals and cinematography are splendid, and the murder mystery element of the plot - with some added sex, sizzle and nuclear shenanigans - looks promising on the page. Yet it never delivers on that promise of being something dark, to be a labyrinthine noir thriller beating a black heart.

It starts off so well, based on the infamous "Hat Squad" we reasonably expect the story to expand upon the opening macho machinations of the four tough hombres in the hats, but instead away from Nolte's grizzled Hoover, the other three guys are merely dressed up props. Which means there's some good actors wasted, sadly.

As the plot moves slowly forward the investigation and Hoover character axis becomes less interesting. Griffith came in for some critical grief for a lacklustre performance, but she's done no favours by the writers who fail to give her marriage to Hoover any substance.

This is a film I should hate.
The fact that I bought this goes to prove there must be something good about it: a mood perhaps? a message? or is it just a good thriller with a twist?
In a nutshell it's a murder mystery set in the 50's with the good guys (the cops) biting off more than they can chew in the shape of the military.
A great cast, interesting script, well shot & directed (Lee Tamahori has directed some of my favorites)- it's not brilliant but it has that feel........
Evocative of the 50's- great cars, snazzy suits and everyone chain smokes! There's a feeling that something rotten lies beneath the veneer. Even the good guys have things to hide.
It's very slick (someone else mentions 'The Untouchables' & I agree) and you could easily dismiss this as a 'star formula' film with the requisite 'emotional' scenes, some violence & a political message.
It's cheap, it's easy to watch so buy it and make your own mind up!

A simple tale of hat wearing cops who bully and harrass their to the truth behind a hooker's death. Nolte leads a heavyweight cast in an unsophisticated and uncomplicated story of military cover ups and murder. The plethora of well known faces in 'cameo' parts and the bulk of the hat wearers reduced to a series of supporting 'star turns' lead this viewer to think about post production stuido tinkering. Well, this version is good. Maybe an untinkered with version is better. We'll probably never know.

no spoilers

arrived promptly - no damages - well packed - as described - no hassles - would recommend

I finally got round to watching this. And I'm glad I did. I can see why it gets the raves it does.

I don't care if its based on fact/true story/ whatever - I just enjoyed the movie.

Very well shot all production values spot on.

For me there was sometimes almost a comic book feel to it. 4 just men righting wrongs. With lantern jaws and steely blue eyes. Truth justice and the American way..... and then reality smacks you right in the kisser. - it doesn't quite sink to spillane levels of dialogue but it wouldn't take much to make this a very different movie.

as it is its realism for the grown ups. very convincing violence - because of the physical presence of the lead men. and actually believable emotions and reactions. All very well acted. the pace was always moving - you sort of knew - or thought you knew but the reveals are not unbelievable AND are more subtle and not always for good or bad.

This is a movie I enjoyed - and even though I know story now I will enjoy watching this again.

ACID TEST: would I buy again - recommend - YES
