Set in New York in the 1950s, the action of the film follows the story of a particular detective affected by Tourette Syndrome, Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), who tries to unravel the mystery of the murder of his mentor and his only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis).
Although each actor does his or her job reasonably, the film seems to be unrelated. An untold story, simplistic and unlikely, the outdated music that fails to create the atmosphere of the 1950s, an anost main character, covered with Tourette syndrome, a condition that greatly diminishes the drama of the story, although Edward Norton, the main actor and director of this film, it does, however, play a reasonable role. I do not know why, with so many great actors, the film does not remain in your memory as a reference! Edward Norton had also played a very good role, mimicking a troubled character 18 years ago (The Score – Final Score, 2001). That movie was, I think, completely different. I hope the film is better than I had the ability and the ability to evaluate it! Enjoy!
