The Caveman’s Valentine

ROMULUS LEDBETTER LIVES ON THE EDGE. THE VIEW IS INCREDIBLE.Ā 

Romulus Ledbetter (Samuel L. Jackson), who lives in a cave in a New York park and suffers from delusions, finds a dead body and comes to believe not only that he was murdered but that he knows who did it. This one may not look like it, but it is a whodunit (complete with a finale where Ledbetter gets to explain the case a la Poirot) that also takes us inside the mind of one of those tragic, homeless people one occasionally sees in the streets. Jackson is good, although the character becomes a bit tedious after a while; unfortunately, the mystery suffers the same fate.

2001-U.S. 105 min. Color. Directed byĀ Kasi Lemmons. Screenplay, Novel: George Dawes Green. Music: Terence Blanchard. Cast: Samuel L. Jackson (Romulus Ledbetter), Colm Feore (David Leppenraub), Ann Magnuson (Moira), Aunjanue Ellis, Rodney Eastman, Tamara Tunie… Anthony Michael Hall.
