I was a little frustrated at the sometimes listless pace of the film, when the setting and characters are so vivid and interesting. John Cusack's character is the most paper-thin and is to blame for a lot of the film's meandering. Whenever Kevin Spacey or Jude Law are on screen, acting fireworks are going off.

Absolutely terrible movie. A good cast and a good director (Clint Eastwood) but it doesn't work at all.

An epic length mystery drama based off what remains the longest standing NYT bestselling book. It's got a great set-up for a good Southern Gothic drama.
John Cusack plays the reporter who visits Savannah, Georgia on assignment and winds up getting entangled in a murder case. The suspect is the enigmatic socialite and art collector Jim Williams (Spacey) who's accused of killing his gay lover (Law).
While Cusack navigates the old-timey alleyways and uncovers secrets in this Deep South city, he meets up with a lot of strange characters. Whether it be a slimy lawyer or a sassy drag queen, Savannah is apparently rather an odd place to live.
Too bad the movie does nothing and stalls for almost two-thirds of its running time. It's a slow slow moving film that becomes less interesting. …
