Why watch this film?
A competent murder mystery starring Benicio del Toro, Alicia Silverstone, and Justin Timberlake (which also marks Del Toro's debut as a screenwriter). "Reptile," a Netflix exclusive, follows the investigation of an experienced detective into the brutal murder of a young real estate agent, a process that will lead him to confront the illusions of his own life. While it definitely doesn't reach the level of David Fincher or Denis Villeneuve (its obvious references), it's a classic and competent thriller with some missteps (such as Timberlake's performance), but it is elevated by Benicio del Toro's work in front of the camera.
Tom Nichols is a hardened New England detective, unflinching in his pursuit of a case where nothing is as it seems and it begins to dismantle the illusions in his own life.
