Reviews
Mine: Engrossing mystery. Wonderful atmoshpere. Good stuff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Wenders' first American film is a real treat for detective buffs: an adaptation of Joe Gores' fiction about famed author Dashiell Hammett's involvement in a real-life mystery (elements of which would find their way into his later stories). You couldn't ask for a more faithful re-creation of 1930s studio look; a magnificent-looking (and sounding) film. Several years in production, with much of it reportedly reshot by executive producer Francis Coppola, but final result is seamless.
