03.27.07Netflix Paul Newman reprises Ross MacDonald's Harper character in this solid if not a bit predictable private eye story set in bayourific Louisiana. I thought the best part of the movie was Linda Haynes. She seemed to have a real wounded world-weariness... she plays an awesome prostitute or tramp or otherwise trashy woman.

um... oh yeah, Melanie Griffith plays the same exact character as she did in Night Moves... 1975 must have been a really popular (and slutty) year for her.

not much else to say about this one...
