Essay on THE PELICAN BRIEF

"...the reason to give thought to these creatively orchestrated murders in The Pelican Brief is that they constitute notable examples of where the stylisation on show doesn't render murder, death and the victim's lives an abstraction. Instead, Pakula’s style actually supports an insight into the horrors of life snuffed out. The smooth commercial moves are delivered, but the gloss on show is not shallow."
