mysteries are always 2 stories. what happened. and how the hero figured it out. the film did not seem fragmented to me at all. like Jack, I have high hopes for the adaptation of The Black Dahlia. but I believe it has its work cut out for it to top Hollywoodland. hopefully the two of them together will not only be outstanding works, but huge commercial successes, ushering in a new era of noir on film

yeah, that'll happen. forget it , Jake. it's Chinatown
