When an elderly client loses a fortune on an investment, fearless Sally Lockhart will stop at nothing to rectify the situation — even if it means risking everything important to her in the process. As Sally sorts out the threads of the mystery — a magician being pursued by thugs, a clairvoyant who sees a brutal murder in the woods and a rich, heartless industrialist on a mad mission — nothing fits together. But as Sally closes in on the truth, it becomes devastatingly clear that her life will be forever altered.

Laurel J (br) wrote: Maddin's only color feature to date, and very lushly colored it is. Makes great use of stars Gorshin and Duvall. An ostrich farm, a leg amputation, anamnesiac, "sleephunting"--pure Maddin, and very funny.

Jeffery H (ag) wrote: Great cop movie. One wants a partner and the other dont, but when a cop is murdered they decide they have to work together. Anthony Edwards and Forrest Whitaker get a thumbs up on this movie.

Jonathan R (kr) wrote: Pretty good as propaganda. I didn't expect much, but the cast is pretty good and it's more interesting than I would have thought possible. Anthony Mann's direction keeps the pace perfectly throughout, and lets the actors carry the movie.

Brian O (jp) wrote: Could be great but.... It needs more plot and back story, or even after story. It could be a great movie just missing to much to make a complete story... People who love no sence movies like eraser head will like this movie. It could have been beyond awesome, I'd still watch this POS over eraser head....
