The Life of David Gale (2003)

Life of David Gale, The (2003, USA) C-130m. SCOPE ** D: Alan Parker. Starring Kevin Spacey, Kate Winslet, Laura Linney, Matt Craven, Gabriel Mann, Alan Parker. Mediocre drama in the vein of TRUE CRIME (1999) and DEAD MAN WALKING (1995). Reporter Winslet gets the chance to interview murderer and rapist Spacey, who's awaiting execution on death row. She firmly believes he is guilty, despite his reputation as an anti-capital punishment activist and philosophy professor. What brought him into this situation? Interesting but overlong and not always credible, good performances keep it afloat. Director Parker also produced with Nicolas Cage.
