Movie comment: Mr. Brooks

I saw this at a friend’s house the other day. I liked the look – clean and spare. I thought the Brooks/Smith relationship was great (though Strangers on a Train is still a better partner in crime story if you ask me). It was quite satisfying until the “it was only a dream” rugpull at the end. I cannot abide that cheap trick. A good thriller, though, besides the problem at the end.
