About the Movie

There's a murky, tenuous balance between reality and fiction - particularly when it involves a beautiful young woman, murder, a powerful politico, a missing fortune and suicide. A passionate filmmaker, creating a film based upon a true crime, casts an unknown mysterious young woman bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. He finds himself unsuspectingly drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, as he becomes obsessed with the woman, the crime, her past and the complex relationship between art and truth. From the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina to Verona, Rome and London, new truths are revealed, and clues uncovered to other crimes and passions, ever darker and more complex.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If Mr. Hellman's movie only partly fulfills its promise as a gripping neo-noir mystery, his stylistic hallmarks lend it a singularly haunting atmosphere. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 9, 2011

Fresh: A stylish, shimmering neo-noir with a multi-layered narrative for which the director's longtime collaborator Steven Gaydos has written an exceedingly elliptical and challenging script. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Jun 16, 2011

Fresh: [Combines] an almost quaint self-reflexiveness with state-of-the-art digital filmmaking... – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Jun 7, 2011

Rotten: Ultimately, the film gets too clever and confusing for its own good, while the slow pacing zaps momentum from the story (and the story within the story). – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 21, 2011

Do Not Waste Your Time!

This movie is a mess.
I only rented it because of the high reviews.
This movie makes no sense, and makes no apologies.

Monte Hellmann

Hellman doesn't make bad movies. Wish Apple would get some other of his films or all of them.
One of the last great Hollywood directors!

Just plain B A D...

This movie is bad. Nothing else needs to be said. It is "all over the place...BAD". Even at the end of the movie ther is still confusion on all accounts...I wasted my time, don't waste yours
