Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 15th, 2007

De Niro & Duvall

Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall are brothers. One is a high mucky muck in the LA Archdiocese and the other is a cop investigating a Black Dahlia-type murder in the 40s. It seems that no matter where the cop turns, there is some connection to his brother's associates, specifically Charles Durning, who is a building contractor trying to buy his way into heaven.

The interplay between the two is electric and it is not often you get to see two stars of this caliber together. I guess the only other time was in The Godfather, but they were part of a huge cast and not the central focus as they are here.

Comic relief was provided by the appearance of Burgess Meredith, as a priest that was always fighting the Cardinal. James Hong played the coroner. The man has had over 300 roles and is still going strong.

Joan Didion and husband John Gregory Dunne wrote the screenplay from his novel. They worked together on seven scripts before he died.

Great period piece.
