Forget It, Jake. It's No Chinatown.
Beautifully photographed, but with none of the urgency, danger or menace of its most obvious influence. The time period details were excellent but the story was inert. Most interesting scenes were between Norton and Baldwin, but they couldn't save the movie. Really wanted to like it more.
Food in Films: "Moses Randolph would be satisfied with a pastrami sandwich and power." Feels like there should've been a lot more pie and coffee in this one. Probably would've made it a better movie.
