Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Harry Ross (Paul Newman), a retired private investigator, agrees to help long-time friends, former screen legend Jack Ames (Gene Hackman) and his wife Catherine (Susan Sarandon), with a favor and rapidly becomes embroiled in the center of a dangerous and complex murder mystery.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Drama - Twilight is an extremely slow-paced murder mystery and character study, one based almost entirely on the appeal of the cast. Older viewers are most likely to appreciate watching the interaction of the veteran stars, as might those who simply enjoy solid acting. As a story, however, Twilight is predictable and unimpressive, with little to offer viewers looking for an engrossing narrative. Entertaining perhaps as an acting exercise, but not as a great piece of film-making.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
At first glance, Twilight looks like it should be a gem, a sly and subtle tale of decaying affluence which would double as a declaration of vitality from its talented cast. Too sly and subtle for its own good, perhaps, because Twilight ends up offering very little you haven't seen in dozens of seedy L.A.-based capers -- corrupt cops, buried secrets, friends who turn out to be enemies, enemies who turn out to be friends. The only reason it offers something more than the usual generic time-waster is the collection of talent on the screen. Playing with the notion that they're all washed up, Newman, Hackman, Sarandon and company actually reassert themselves in the present...just not in a story that's terribly worth the trouble.
