Directed by Jonathan Demme
Screenplay by David Shaber
Last Embrace is a film in which a stylish director and a superb cast (even the small parts are played by well-known and expert players, including Sam Levene, Charles Napier and Academy Award Winner Christopher Walken) do their best to triumph over a script that lacks witty writing and genuinely suspenseful substance. The result is a pleasant movie to watch, if your idea of a good time is an unelevated pulse, but one that leaves no lasting impression.
The story has its promising aspects....
