It has its merits..............................
on 18 January 2008
Brilliantly directed and superbly cast and acted with an outstanding and varied soundtrack, but I was disappointed. Frankly I was expecting something along the lines of Se7en, The Watcher, or Silence of the Lambs. What I saw was a film concerning the sex lives of the main characters and drug, alcohol and incoherent thought. A Serial killer is on the rampage in the blistering heat of New york in 1977. Our characters are trying to guess who it might be and making the suspects fit the crimes. They fail.
There is little time actually spent on the crimes or killer himself.
For me it was rather a let-down but it is worth watching once.
I would not want to see it again, but I gave it 3 stars for its many attributes.
