The Guilty

The Guilty ★★

unfortunately it appears that jake watched the original and saw the chance for an exercise in Acting and melodrama when it was actually the casual, understated quality in both its environment and lead performance vs. the intensity of the situation that made that film work. its only original gesture being the choice to add a downright absurd swing into cop weepy territory right at the very end (especially in an american context) i think summarizes everything wrong with it as a remake. however, if you haven't seen that film, many of the engrossing twists and turns have been faithfully (and mostly competently) recreated almost beat-for-beat/line-for-line.
