Where the Truth Lies
Well-acted film that showcases the acting talents of Colin Firth & Kevin Bacon. Even though Father Time has caught up with both of these men, they remain very handsome, & sexy, & they both are amazing actors, in their own right. I am very confident that they will both be around for a long time to come, & will have an even larger following than they currently enjoy.<br><br>This was, indeed, a "whodunnit-type mystery, with a surprise ending, which makes a film worth watching. I mean, who doesn't hate a predictable story?<br>I also viewed it as a love story, that ended in tragedy. It made me think, more than once, "Oh, dear, if only," & I felt great sadness, for two of the characters involved. I want to read the book, now, & I hope that Rupert Holmes will write...or has written...more mysteries for us.<br><br>Look closely, & you'll recognize the actress who played the "Thai" girl, in "Bridget Jones: the Edge of Reason," who befriends Bridget, in jail, & who barters for her red bra.<br><br>It was good to see Maury Chaykin, in the role of Sally, the Mafioso-type nightclub owner. You'll remember him from "Mouse Hunt," & "Dances With Wolves."<br>This talented character actor should have more roles, or even be offered a role in a TV series.<br><br>Back to the film: NOT for family viewing, to be sure!! NOT for judgemental-type people, either, nor for the squeamish. It seems to be quite a realistic, believable story, & is worth adding to your DVD collection.<br>Roberta HughesRead full review

Excellent Performance By Bacon & Collins
This movie is underrated & in fact, has no rating whatsoever which is sad because...I really liked it. Set back in the 60's during the drug culture among the jet-set of Hollywood where drugs, sex & the Mafia reigned supreme. Since it comes from my time period, I especially liked the director's point-of-view. This is a story about 2 men who were in the entertainment business as partners. They put on a Labor Day Telethon for Polio. It is not exactly like Jerry Lewis putting on a telethon. The movie pulls you back & forth from present day to the past gracefully. You will have to pay attention. There are some twists & turns to it. There is a plot. I would recommend it for those that want to think, as it has a good story.

Story good, Sex is a bit graphic for my taste.
Another film my sister sent me. Great story, excellent acting, but the girl on girl and boy on boy sex is more than I want to see. After all I do have an imagination. But the premesis of the story was excellent. Good writing begets good films, even if the sex-o-inuendo is a bit much. Max Rainet.
