Did not quite get there for me.04 March 2011

I wanted so much to like this movie... no, I wanted to *love* this movie. 1930's L.A. Robert Towne. Based on a book by a guy who had a reputation like Nathaniel West, blistering prose, bravado writing. I guess I'll have to break down and buy the book. The movie sure didn't do it for me.
