Film: ‘The Ninth Gate’ – “You know, 300 years ago, you’d have been burned at the stake for saying something like that.”

It needs more research but I’ve got a theory, any film which features Johnny Depp smoking seems to value style over substance. Or to phrase it another way: when he smokes the plot sucks.

In this case the plot is a rare book dealer is hired to authenticate and acquire a legitimate copy of a book claimed to be a book rumoured to be able to summon the devil.

As with most demonic thingies in films there is a conspiracy and things go weird – very very weird and very very slowly!

The plot wasn’t strong enough to support the film being over 2 hours long and nor was the acting!
