The Ninth Gate (Netflix Disc):

A rare book dealer, while seeking out the last two copies of a demon text, gets drawn into a conspiracy with supernatural overtones.

It was pretty good, until it got really weird. Depp stars in this, and he does this thing. Frank Langella (the reason I put this on my list) is barely there, anyone could had done that role, honestly. The story moved along nicely, then it took a rather hard left turn into “I’m not sure what is happening right now” and the ending landed with a thud. Take it or leave it, IMO. I probably would have left it, in hindsight.

It’s been many years since I watched it, but I recall similar thoughts about this movie/ My memory while not as specific is that is that I felt rather unsatisfied when it was all said and done.
