FBI agent Joel Campbell, burnt-out and shell-shocked after years spent chasing serial killers, flees L.A. to begin a new life for himself in Chicago. But five months later, Joel's best laid plans are abruptly cut short when his new hometown becomes the setting for some particularly gruesome murders--murders that could only have been committed by one man: David Allen Griffin. One of Joel's most elusive and cunning nemeses, Griffin has followed his former pursuer to Chicago in order to play a sadistic game of cat and mouse. Taunting Joel with photographs of his intended victims and leaving his crime scenes meticulously free of clues in order to keep the police at bay, Griffin derives as much pleasure out of watching Joel react to every movement as watching his victims die. But when Griffin moves into Joel's inner circle, Joel must quickly find some way to stop him before someone close to him becomes the next one to die.

There are so many good things to comment on, its hard to know where to start: the screenplay, plot, cast, acting, direction, editing, originality, cleverness, wittiness, intelligence, style, jokes, purpose, music, special effects, make-up and all-round funniness. This movie is perhaps the greatest ever achievement in film. There is nothing bad about this movie. Nothing. Its utterly flawless and deserves all the praise it gets. Seltzer and Friedberg have created their best film yet. Also, Ms. Kardashian is likely to win best actress given her stellar turn as lisa. Now take in the opposite of all that. Pretty much sums up the film in its aforementioned title ;)

A co-worker had a similar conversation with a customer from Portugal regarding the fact that there was nothing on his property but "the sheps and the glas"... "Ships and Glass?"... "No, the sheps and the glas"... for about 5 turns until she realized he was saying the sheeps and the grass. I was crying with laughter by then because it was so like the movie.

Ben W (au) wrote: a very decent little western. i have to say, its always a joy to see barbara stanwyck in movies. shes great in this. walkter huston has a decent performance even though im not particularly partial to him overall. some of the writing is weak but other parts do a pretty good job. its certainly a bold movie with some definite electra complex tones running underneath it and all of the characters (save maybe one, but he dies) are heavily conflicted and make wrong steps which makes them more human. its definitely not the kind of film we are used to seeing from this period.
