The Singing Detective

This off-kilter remake of Dennis Potter's acclaimed British mini-series is certainly not for all tastes. It's a post-modern film noir musical about a hospitalized writer (the always odd Robert Downey Jr.) who seems to be hallucinating that he's the protagonist of a detective novel. A detective novel in which people sing. There are those rare few who will find the film's sharp wit and discombobulating mixture of genres refreshing. The vast majority of viewers, however, will find it absurdly incoherent. 84 minutes
