Twitter Capsule: Dubious at root, especially Guatemalan finale; impressed this odd cast and crew sell it as well as they do. So brunette!

VOR:   Baldwin, intense but controlled. Heche, Gandolfini in model support. Moore rising to costars' occasion. Nods at self-reflexive sound and image. Still hogwash, but real effort.
