Twilight (1998)

Robert Benton directs Paul Newman, Susan Sarandon and Gene Hackman in this neo-noir where a retired detective gets embroiled in one last case thanks to his rich and untrustworthy friends.

The one that starts off with Reese Witherspoon in a swimsuit. The one that only a minute later has Reese Witherspoon not in a swimsuit… at all. The one where all the characters seem to think Paul Newman has had his dick shot off. Sounds strange, doesn’t it, but this is very enjoyable. A stacked cast (James Garner, Stockard Channing, Liev Schreiber) helps, as does some excellent LA location work. An underrated gem.
