    Interesting and disturbing film, acted terribly well by Nicholson...

    There is no doubting that this film has an extremely talented cast, and Jack Nicholson is excellent as the lead, however this film was just a little too dark for me in places, and way too dark in others!

    The disc itself is fine, with a good video transfer and OK audio - it's just a shame about the extras (surprise surprise!). we get cast & crew bios and a trailer, and that's it. ok, so it's better than nothing, but it's still pretty pathetic.

    Overall, worth renting, but this won't be to everyone's tastes.
