A race against time is always a convenient way of giving a drama some urgency and it's used to great effect in this story about an old-school journalist convinced that a convict on death row is innocent. Clint Eastwood plays the hard-drinking, womanizing hack, Isaiah Washington the condemned black man, in prison more because of the colour of his skin than anything he's actually done. Familiar material, maybe, but so well written and coolly directed you'll be gripped throughout.
This thoughtful American tragedy touches on racism and vigilantism and is another gem in Clint Eastwood's magnificent career.
