Director Atom Egoyan (Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter) stirred up a bit of controversy recently, landing an NC-17 rating for this racy whodunit. Alison Lohman (Big Fish) stars as a journalist probing a mysterious death that led to the breakup of a Martin-and-Lewis-like showbiz team (Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon). Egoyan's attempt at a flashback-slathered film noir atmosphere fails to catch fire thanks to some rather unsympathetic characters and some not-quite-convincing period detail. It has its naughty moments, though. 108 minutes Unrated.
