This is a suspenseful and well-told story. It will keep your attention. The photography is great! The characters are all eccentric and perhaps I could say they are weird. It goes from the good to the very evil, and at midnight there is an offering at the cemetery by Minerva: for the evil and for the good. It dwells into the occult and is full of grey areas. It is definitely a reflection of our soc... read more

"Aika kehnoo Itäpuuta. Spacey on lipevän sulava rikkaana homona ja Cusack esittää samaa roolia vuodesta toiseen."

"As I read in someone's review, in this Clint Estawood's film, J.C. plays a strictly functional role. Despite this, it is a really fascinating film."

A complete review of Clint Eastwood's work (32 movies items)

" Cast : John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, Jude Law What was it about? A visiting city reporter's assignment suddenly revolves around the murder trial of a local millionaire, whom he befriends. My two cents: From this string of disappointing features, this movie was the only one which had the potential to be really good. Indeed, there was a pretty good buzz about it before its release, the story was really intriguing and there was a pretty strong cast. Unfortunately, the whole thing turned out to "

“This is a suspenseful and well-told story. It will keep your attention. The photography is great! The characters are all eccentric and perhaps I could say they are weird. It goes from the good to the very evil, and at midnight there is an offering at the cemetery by Minerva: for the evil and for the good. It dwells into the occult and is full of grey areas. It is definitely a reflection of our society and the city is also a little too evil. I thought it to be suspenseful but I did not feel comfortable watching it. It is too weird, but by the same token so is the world we live in.

"I keep spacing out on the dates that I watch these. Rented Love Kevin Spacey, as usual. An I liked Cusack too, for once. This wasn't a riveting, mind bending movie in the least, but I liked it. I just sat back and enjoyed the ride, and it was like getting a front row seat into these people's private lives. Casual, interesting."

"Everyone should watch this movie. Some say it's slow, but I've never noticed. Great haunting music and interesting story. Plot: A visiting city reporter's assignment suddenly revolves around the murder trial of a local millionaire, whom he befriends. Location: Savannah, Georgia Fav Quotes: "It's like my mom always said: 'Two tears in a bucket, motherf*ck it'." "This place is fantastic. It's like Gone With the Wind on Mescalin. I know you're my agent. Listen to me, they walk imaginary pets"

""To understand the living, you got to commune with the dead." Directed by: Clint Eastwood Starring: John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, Jack Thompson, Jude Law Rating: 7/10 Great acting, particularly from the always mezmerizing Kevin Spacey. The characters are terrific, and the story is interesting and it got a mystical sense over it that I really like. But, it do run a bit long, and is a bit slow sometimes. "
