Filmfest 2006

An architectural writer is called to the deathbed of his mother (a rare appearance by Kim Novak), an event that leads him into a web of shadowy figures, lust and jealousy surrounding a condemned, cast-iron building. "An atmospheric neo-noir about a journalist who gets involved with an old friend’s wife on the eve of the destruction of a historic cast-iron building. Ironically enough, the building is the site of a years-earlier triple-murder/suicide, in which a vengeful husband killed two cheating lovers.... Putting this all together isn’t simple, as Figgis’s way-convoluted tale takes you down many a dream-sequenced road. But the ride is a fun one, and the cast is surprisingly apt." Christopher Null,
