No, this film noir failure should not have been 2 hours and 29 minutes. Good acting, confusing story and sketchy directing made this potential good film into a disaster. There were periods of lengthy segments that put me to sleep. Avoid this one.

There were several distinct problems with this movie and many good things.
What was good
Edward Norton gave a strong and faultless acting performance as did the rest of the cast.
The atmosphere of 50's New York and musical score was immensely evocative and comprehensively realised.
What was problematic
The narrative drive ran out of steam as so much of the labyrinthine plot had similar repetitive scenes, it was unvarying.
Overly long led to viewer exhaustion, of the 50 people in my viewing 20 had walked out by the 80 minute marker.
The subject matter of municipal corruption, sibling jealousy and Tourette's syndrome was hardly designed to get the juices flowing.
Ultimately it was overlong and repetitive it could have been so much better with some editing and some more action.
Not a single stranger that first come across Mr. Tourette's handles it other than accepting? Give me a break. It is not realistic to think that not a single person would have reacted differently to someone approaching the way Mr. Tourette's does. It is just not believable and takes away from the movie.
The movie had potential, but seems like nothing special compared to others in the genre.
