An American Dream

A somewhat messy adaptation of Norman Mailer's novel, with Whitman as the ruthless TV commentator who implies that the cops are in the pay of the Mob, only to find himself winding up on a murder charge. It would like to be nightmarish, instead it's just tediously violent. Parker as Whitman's embittered and alcoholic ex-wife, brings the thing to life in her scenes, but otherwise it's a long haul.
