Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The murder scene is littered with so many red herrings it might as well be a delicatessen.
Rotten: its completely muddled plot is a disaster: There can be no joy in unraveling a plot that is a mystery even to itself.
Rotten: A potentially fascinating subject is torpedoed by an overplotted and overloaded script, and opaque direction.
Is there truth in fiction ?
A great movie of our time concerning the greed of the oil industry in the twentieth century and beyond. People are getting killed because
they have knowledge of a better way to live. A world where there is no dependance on foreign oil. One of the best
performances of Marlin Brando.
