No twinkly vampires.
Just weather-beaten private eyes, a deliciously-twisty tale of murder and blackmail, and old pros coming together to create a minor masterpiece.
The director is Robert Benton of Kramer vs. Kramer fame, the composer is 14-time Oscar nominee Elmer Bernstein, and the cast is a who’s-who of stars, headed up by the incomparable Paul Newman.
He’s in deep this time around, beginning to suspect his pals may know more about an unsolved murder than they’re willing to reveal.
Still he plows ahead, even after being shot by a young Reese Witherspoon(!), the last man of good conscience.
