Intriguing "Southern Gothic" from director Clint Eastwood, with engaging performances from an all-star cast, including John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, and Jude Law. But it's also a meandering, overlong film, and one which fails to bring the most out of its source material (it is based on the fascinating non-fiction book of the same name). Still, an interesting misfire from a master filmmaker.
