    Those looking for Dan Brown entertainment will quickly be overwhelmed, but those who can respect McCarthy for the dense writer he is and trust in his guidance are in for a dark, complex treat.

    "Does James Ponsoldt make films about alcoholics?" is the new "Does a bear shit in the woods?"

    Not a bad first film, but it doesn't help that every character besides Nolte's is underwritten and poorly acted (including DeWitt). The major surprise, though, is how articulate Nolte is here compared to his current indecipherable polar bear self.

    The Cumberbatch reign continues, but the debut (at least for me) of evil Rebecca Hall is the real accomplishment.

    Extra sweet after seeing the bland '60s BBC version with a young Judi Dench.
