Movie: Primal Fear (1996)

A legal thriller and beyond!. That's what I would call Primal Fear. A Chicago defense attorney(Richard Gere) takes on the case of a young man(Ed Norton)who has murdered a priest. Unsure of the boy's innocence when he takes on the case, he is conviniced, as the case progresses, that this boy is schizophrenic. This movie presents a bold new look into the American Legal System. It would land a relative unknown, talented Edward Norton, his first Oscar nomination for an outstanding performance. The end was an unexpected shocker. I enjoyed this one.
