RV!: Snake Eyes (1998)

RV!: Snake Eyes (1998) Dir: Brian De Palma Date Released: August 7, 1998 Date Seen: April 10, 2011 Rating: 3.75/5

Not sure what everyone doesn't like about the ending, which I thought was just bland, but everything leading up to that was pretty bang-on. People can complain about David Koepp's screenplay while lauding De Palma's direction but you can't have one without the other, obviously. A very compelling mystery yarn well-paced, well-acted (one of my favorite Cage performances), featuring some teasing De Palma flourishes about the corrupting influence of scopophilia and oh yeah, some snappy dialogue, too. What do you people WANT exactly?
