Eyes of Laura Mars

I really wanted to love this film, and at times I did. Kershner is obviously inspired by the italian giallo genre; like Lucio Fulci's The Psychic from 1977. There are some great shots and visual ideas presented here. Overall, though, Eyes of Laura Mars is an atmospheric thriller above average with great performances from Tommy Lee Jones and especially Faye Dunaway. Sadly, the writing isn't up to the standard.
