Director Roman Polanski has never done things by the book, so it’s weird he’s tasked Johnny Depp with hunting down rare volumes of Satanic lore to open The Ninth Gate of Hell in this 1999 mystery.  Is the Devil in the detailed illustrations of these hardback occultist works, or has he taken human form and committed a string of international murders in libraries? And why is the Edward Scissorhands actor all butterfingers when it comes to sexy guardian angel Emamnuelle Seigner? The answers are available when you enter into Now Playing patronage.
