Pinhole Movie Reviews


Jagged Edge by tincolor

Glenn Close is a lawyer who has agreed to defend Jeff Bridges, a young man who may or may not have killed his rich wife. This is classic, by the numbers film noir in every sense. Even switching the genders of the femme fatal and the hard-as-nails protagonist barely feels like a spin on the genre. Is that a bad thing? If you like film noir, definitely not. Is Jeff Bridges guilty? Well you’ll have to watch to the end to find out, but here’s a hint: like just about every other film noir plot, there are going to be a lot of twists along the way and pretty much no one is going to end up happy in the end. I didn’t watch this very long ago, and at the time I enjoyed it, but honestly I cannot remember most of the details at this point. Watchable, but probably pretty forgettable.

P.S. Robert Loggia was nominated for an Academy Award for his role.
