Fracture - DVD - 7/1/10

Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling face off against one another in a Hitchcockian thriller about a man who murders his wife (Hopkins) and the arrogant young D.A who must prove it in court.

This is a clever movie that only falls flat by shoe-horning in irrelevant and clunky background stories to pad out the running time. Whenever Gosling and Hopkins are not on screen together the pace slows to near reverse but when they are together the pleasure to be derived from watching genuinely gifted actors is worth the wait.
