This was rather good, better than expected, but then I hadn't realised that it was a David Mamet script, and directed by Lee Tamahori. Largely sustained by a good Hopkins performance, and Baldwin wasn't too much of a plonker.
Not a masterpiece - too many incongruities and 'you can't really expect me to believe that' moments, especially the bearskin(!) - but a good evening's relaxation. Recommended if that's what you're after.
