Review For: True Confessions (DVD, 2007, Dual Side)

Robert Duvall plays Tom, a homicide detective who isn't above a little graft here and there, yet he's still a good cop. His brother is an ambitious priest who also manipulates ethics "for the good of the parish." The priest is the mother’s favorite, and there is a lot of jealous tension between Tom and his brother.

Loosely based on the Black Dahlia murder case in L.A. during the forties, a young woman has come to Hollywood to make it big in pictures. Instead, she stars in cheap porn movies. Her body is found badly mutilated, and as Tom digs deeper and deeper into her past, he begins to uncover links between her and his brother the priest.

It’s a superb movie about sex, murder, hypocrisy and a brotherly love that transcends it all. Robert Duvall is engrossing as a cop who does something to his brother that on the surface seems very bad, but turns out to be the salvation of them both. Two thumbs up!

Review For: True Confessions (DVD, 2007, Dual Side)

I wasn't sure about this movie when I ordered it, but thought I would take a chance. The plot has a very thinly veiled Black Dahlia murder and the story revolves more around the two brothers--one is a Detective and another one is a Catholic Priest. Various people confess to various things throughout the movie and it kept me guessing as to whether the killer would be caught and to what was going on in 1940's Los Angeles. The movie was surprisingly well done. It has a noir feel to it as well as a good story line. I liked it and I am not even Catholic! Many beautiful costumes appear in this movie as well as those cool 1940's styles. The Black Dahlia portion of the story is kind of off, but not really too far off from the actual case. I think people who are studying the Black Dahlia case will like this movie and it may give them some things to think about. It's not going to go into too many specifics, but it will give them some other avenues to pursue maybe.

Review For: True Confessions (DVD, 2007, Dual Side)

We haven't viewed the DVD we purchased yet but we bought it because it was impossible to find it at any movie store. We've seen the movie in past years and it has become one of our favorites so we wanted one of our own. I have no idea what "Dual Side" means but we'll surely find out when we view the film.

Review For: True Confessions (DVD, 2007, Dual Side)

Good film. Solid performances. One of the overlooked films of the 80's. May be paced a little too slow for some viewers. One of the sub plots is the Black Dahlia murder amongst others. Deniro and Duvall are excellent together. Give this film a chance and check it out. Needs to be studied and paid attention to. Tom Schenk.
