Synopsis: A man with a mental disorder who lives in a cave discovers a dead body, decides it was murder, and begins investigating.
One of the characters in the movie calls Jackson a "psycho Sherlock Holmes", and that pretty much sums this one up. You do get to see his bare butt a few times and his stupid human trick and he does look pretty good in dreads. For all of that, the movie isn't bad. Check it out when it comes on.Added 09 March 2003 at 4:50 PM
The basic story was alright but I can't say the movie did much for me. Certain elements and plot points seemed unlikely or they weren't explained well enough but I suspect that's a byproduct of turning a book into a movie. Can't recommend it even though I loved the dreads.Added 09 April 2003 at 11:57 PM
