NBC (Man., Feb. 17, 9 P.M. ET)

B+

Like last year's And the Sea Will Tell, this is a movie based on a book rewritten by Vincent (Helter Skelter) Bugliosi detailing the former prosecutor's legal prowess. Arliss Howard plays Bugliosi in 1967, as a hotshot young assistant district attorney trying to bring a case based on circumstantial evidence against a dermis and deadly former cop (Treat Williams) involved in murder-for-insurance-money schemes.

This would qualify as merely an elaborate ego boost for Bugliosi, except for the strikingly stylish direction by Yves (Memphis) Simoneau. In fact, the movie is so visually creative and seamless that it looks absolutely cinematic, which is exceedingly rare in TV projects, where bland exposition usually rules. One other factor makes this movie Cineplex-suitable: It's unusually violent.
