The Pelican Brief


Alan J. Pakula

After two supreme court Justices are found murdered, a law student and an investigative reporter seek out who is behind it. Slow-moving and at times almost bordering on the boring, it is a waste of such wonderful talent, in my opinion. When you condsider the leading actors, it's a movie which offers much but delivers little.
~Lord Heath

Tense, exciting and well acted by all, although one suspects the plot device, the Pelican Brief, were it to happen for real would merely make a small sub note on the news pages that day.
