100381 12 US 1997 Donner, Richard thriller
Conspiracy Theory / Salaliittoteoria. PC: Warner Bros. P: Joel Silver. D: Richard Donner. CAST: Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Patrick Stewart. 135’. Scope. DIST: Warner Bros. Finland. TRANS: Timo Porri. Viewed at VET, Helsinki, Monday, 1 September 1997. *** Offbeat thriller plays its Manchurian Candidate premise for comedy. Mel Gibson stars as the deranged conspiracy theorist whose worst nightmares prove true. Julia Roberts performs strongly as the agent who has to face a major case of suspension of belief. Reasons to like this: the two fascinating performances and Carter Burwell’s surprising score.
