ALAN RUDOLPH

Bil’s rating (out of 5):    BB

USA, 2000.  Pandora Cinema, Sandcastle 5 Productions, Sony Pictures Classics.  Story by Alan Rudolph, , Screenplay by Alan Rudolph.  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by , .  Production Design by , .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by , .  

Dull, uneventful murder mystery directed by Alan Rudolph.   is so cute it hurts as the titular heroine, a tongue-twisted innocent who wants to graduate from store detective (or ‘defective’ as she keeps saying) to full-fledged P.I. She sees her chance to prove herself when a mysterious murder connected with a local political intrigue arises in the little haven of a town she’s been assigned a job in. Watson’s work, as well as that by the well-rounded cast that features , Nick Nolte,  and the lovely Lesley Ann Warren, is completely undermined by the dull-as-dishwater pacing and flat and ugly cinematography, something odd for a Rudolph film.
