| Smart story-telling with twists, great acting yet shoddy tempo
Twisting and turning, this film uses great actors and direction for an interesting story: is David Gale, staunch opponent of the death penalty, guilty of rape and murder? Kate Winslet plays a journalist who is to interview Gale three days prior to his execution on the fourth. One follows Gale's story as he tells it, and it wavers from heart-wrenching to horrid, exciting to sluggish. Is the man guilty or innocent? Will the journalist unveil anything? And who's the cowboy? I really liked the film, much because of Alan Parker's special sense of pathos, but also because of the very good acting and radiant story. If it weren't for the shoddy sense of tempo, I'd say this film would deserve a place next to "The Usual Suspects", in a weird way.
