In The Cut
This strange little film based on the novel by Susanna Moore, and directed by Jane Campion (The Piano), makes you wait a full hour-and-a-half before anything even remotely exciting happens, and, when it does, it cuts away fairly quickly leaving almost no impact. Only the cast, and a few good laughs make the movie at all worthwhile. It all begins when a body part is found buried in the garden below the apartment of University professor Frannie Avery (Meg Ryan). Investigating detective Malloy (Mark Ruffalo of You Can Count on Me) interviews her and her neighbors. Despite increasingly suspecting that Malloy is the killer, Frannie still has an affair with him. He claims that he scontinues to live with his ex-wife so that he can help her raise their children. Campion films the sex scenes without any hint of real eroticism. And finally after eliminating several obviously false clues, the predictable story ends by revealing the killer, but anyone who still cares, will have long since guessed who it is.
