Singing Detective, The

Oscar nominee Robert Downey, Jr. "gives the performance of his career" in this acclaimed, all-star movie that weaves sly comedy, suspenseful film noir and spirited musical numbers into one of the most original productions in years.

When it comes to murder, seduction and betrayal, pulp-fiction author Dan Dark (Downey) wrote the book. But now, he's living it. Languishing in a hospital room with an immobilizing condition, Dark has lost himself in the fictional world of his alter ego, a hardboiled detective and dance-band singer living in 1950s Los Angeles. As Dark's grasp on reality continues to slip, he's placed under the care of an enigmatic psychiatrist (Oscar winner Mel Gibson). Together, they plunge into the mystery of Dark's psyche, where everyone is suspect and danger waits at every turn.

Co-starring Robin Wright Penn, Jeremy Northam, Katie Holmes, Carla Cugino and Oscar winner Adrien Brody, The Singing Detective hits all the right notes.
