John Flynn Amerika Serikat, 1987

Cbarky99's rating of the film Best Seller

Low-key by current standards, but saturated throughout with a genuine, darkly-humored unease. After a terrific opening sequence dealing with a heist-full of robbers in Nixon masks, and a first act during which I was intrigued by the seeming possibility that the Woods' character was all in Dennehy's head, it settles into a sort of battle of wills between Dennehy's bruised idealism and Woods' sentimental psychopathy.
