    I do not understand why people are downplaying this movie. I thought it was extremly good, yes long but good. The acting alone was astounding and the story was better than some silly, predictable romance that the public keeps watching. All in all in my opinon very good eye opener but not a movie you want to sit down with the family and have a quick easy movie to watch, period.

    This was the most BORING movie I have ever seen. Knowing history, I knew going in they would not find a killer. But to sit there and watch somebody's obsession to find the killer, for over two hours, was truly mind numbing. Saying that, The only reason critcs give such a high rating "these days" to a movie like that is because of the calaber of actors involved. They are legends in their own minds....
