A Week In Film #104: Gunpowder, treason & plot


Duplicity
Quite amusing, enjoyable screwball/long con comedy-drama, with ex-CIA spook Julia Roberts and former MI6 officer Clive Owen coming together for some private sector espionage high jinks. Bourne scriptwriter Tony Gilroy – who impressed with his directorial debut the dark, dour Michael Clayton – shows off a lightness of touch.


Edge Of Darkness
Martin Campbell pisses on the memory of his excellent 80s nuclear securocrat state environmentalist conspiracy/paranoia thriller TV series with a two hour rehash. A two hour rehash with Mel Gibson in the lead! With no tension! With a really crappy ending!
