The Caveman’s Valentine * Kasi Lemmons * 2001

The director of “Silence Of The Lambs” and “Candyman” comes with this “classic and powerfull thriller”. Well, a nice shory based on a book with the same title. Romulus Ledbetter (Samuel L. Jackson) is a paranoide and schizophrenic musician who lives in a cave in a park. On Valentine’s day morning he finds the frozen body of a young vagabond infront of his cave. This is the start of a search for the killer. Rom thinks that there is a man living in a tower controlling everyone’s lifes, but comes up with a possible killer of the friend of a friend and tries to find the thruth.
The film is nicely overlain with strange visions of angels of the caveman, but overall is just a film with an original story that isn’t worked out too well.
