Possibly the best detective movie ever made...
It’s pretty well known that directors are inspired by previous directors, and writers by previous writers, but I sometimes forget that actors do the same, and after watching this movie, I can’t help but see striking resemblances between Jack Nicholson and Leonardo DiCaprio.
This was an incredibly driven film. From the opening sequence to the credits I was completely and utterly swept away by the perfect combination of action, music, and courtroom drama.
To add on, this film had some of the most beautiful colors I’ve seen in a period drama. Ever. It’s really a shame that the theater run was so short, as watching on TVs, laptops, or even phones will come nowhere near seeing it in a theater in terms of…
THE BEST no-budget film I've seen yet. The sound design was great, and the story was thrilling (despite the fact that all scientific information presented was new to me). If you are looking for proof that it's possible to make a feature without a budget (and a successful one at that) this is a must watch.
