Absolutely a must-see! Kept me on my toes through the end… loved the twists and turns and guessing not just one but MANY “who-done-its!?” I loved it! A must see for those who love a good mystery with masterful and intelligent writing and execution.
Extremely whitty & intelligent, dark humour mystery, great cast and acting, interesting storyline that adds some non fictional historical aspects from the time it takes place. It can get a little dark, which isn’t always my favorite type of mystery- but this was so well done, I cannot complain one teensy bit.
Apologies for this purely written opinion/review. I don’t have the time to really write this correctly or well done, but saw your question and had to speed type a reply so you don’t miss out! 2 thumbs up from me. I hope this helps and hope you enjoy it as much as I did if you watch it! Best wishes to you!

There’s also a good movie version from 1986, with Sean Connery and Christian Slater

o_0 He’s on my no watch list, along with the other washed up Hollywood has-beens like Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, and Jim Carrey.

0_o In JC’s case it’s not a matter of how talented an actor he is, or isn’t. We use to love him & owned most, if not all of his movies. JC is from Canada & he’s enjoyed wild success here in America, thanks to us…the America viewers. Yet he chose to make a very sick & disturbing YouTube music video mocking some of America’s greatest iconic historical figures, which instantly made us hate his guts. It felt like having a good friend stab you in the back! So we tossed out every movie we owned that he was in. Unless he were to say publicly & sincerely apologizes to us all as a nation, or something along those lines, I don’t believe our stance towards him will ever change in our household, and I doubt that he’ll ever humble himself enough to do that for us. In my eyes he’s make it very clear that he hates us, by going out of his way to purposely hurt us.

0_o I was forced to eat my words & take Christine Slater off that list after watching him in that new Emilio Estevez movie “The Public” (2019).

Was just checking out your favs PacificLilly and we share many but this one I hadn’t heard of but the cover and name caught my interest, so here I am reading your review. And btw, excellent review, just the way I like them and try to do myself when I have time and feel inspired by something, particularly something I don’t think others might have heard of. I didn’t even notice if you wrote it “correctly or well done” haha felt thorough, passionate, and without giving away anything, so imo, excellent job! I’d love to see more of these types of reviews, and might even check out the show myself when I’m in the mood for the mystery genre.
