Riddle Me This

Today on January Magazine, my review of The Riddle starring Vinnie Jones and Derek Jacobi.

In modern movie terms, think Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels meets The Sixth Sense, but with the sort of stellar cast that would make the film remarkable even if it wasn't quite this good.

In London, an unpublished Dickens novel turns up in the cellar of a Thames-side pub. Pub patron and sports journalist Mike Sullivan (Vinnie Jones) begins investigating a series of murders he doesn't immediately connected with the Dickens manuscript. Even so, he gradually finds himself obsessing on a murder bound within the manuscript pages.

It’s a mystery, it’s literary and it’s here.
