"Excellent film, crappy transfer"

I'm a big fan of David Mamet and saw this film a decade ago. Finally got my grubby mitts on a copy.

Disappointed? Yes. It's 4:3 and 2.0 sound. That said, it's still a great film. If you like Mamet films, get this despite the poop sound and full-frame-ness.

Nice to see Steve Martin in a dramatic role and also Ed O'Neill has a bit part :)


Joe Ross is a trusting man, but having invented a secret, extremely valuable new “process” for his company, Joe fears his employers will rob him of it and deny him a cut of the profit it will make. While on a holiday in the Caribbean. Joe meets millionaire jetsetter, Jimmy Dell, who offers to help negotiate a fair package for his invention. However, meeting him leads to only more doubts in Joe’s mind. As his relationship with his boss deteriorates, so does Joe’s understanding of what is going on around him. Are his friends and acquaintances as they seem, or is there something darker underneath? As everyone from his boss to his secretary pledge their support, Joe finds himself caught in a dangerous web of truth and lies, appearances and disappearances.
