Very very sketchy plot, almost like a very short story decided to make itself into a movie, very predictable and somehow hard to believe (I mean, come on, you would think that in a posh building like that you cannot have an excon as concierge and the residents have to pass all sorts of hoops to get a flat there).I liked the detective though.
(ru) wrote: This film is like watching one bad scene in acting class after another, where the actors flail around with no direction, attempting to give mouth to mouth resuscitation to characters that are so artificially written that no amount of thespian CPR could imbue them with life. Perhaps the reason the performers appear so directionless is that Mr. Hauck spent the majority of his time engineering his painfully self-conscious camera moves in lieu of developing characters, a story, or performances that bear any resemblance to real life.

Mature was surprisingly restrained from his usual scenery chewing and poor Cathy Downs has the most thankless role in any major western. But, this has the typical Ford eye for amazing shot composition and a real sense of the American legend.

(ca) wrote: A fascinating and absorbing story with characters that really gel. It takes a bit of a left turn at the traffic lights with the whole murder mystery element thrown in half way through but nevertheless it works and is a movie I return to at least every couple of years. The ending has some typical time travel movie issues and is all tied up a little too neatly perhaps. I'd have prefered the originally intended ending myself as it avoids some ilogicality and is slightly cleverer. Either way, still a great movie.
