group notes. • Federated search is not going away and making it harder/more complex defeats the appeal of a one- box search. • It all depends on how you. THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE screenplay by. Jonathan Lemkin and Tony Gilroy based on the novel by. Andrew Neiderman. REVISED SHOOTING. THE ADVOCATE by Barry B. Longyear Barry B Longyear, author of “Enemy Mine ” (September ), is still the only author to.
Cullen didn't kill those people. Can you summon your talent at will? Cinnamon cookies. You're kidding. I'm sure he's a whiz kid.
Open your eyes. He takes his hands away. Kissing her good-bye. The definitive New York skyline. In one hour hast thou mighty judgement come. Kevin smiles. I can't give it away on Seventh Avenue. You're my kind of guy. A bored judge. Rats on the West Side. DAY 17 Criminal court. The juror being questioned.
Voire dire. All those courtrooms.. I hardly ever think at all. New York veteran. In fact. Potential jurors fill the benches This town don't look good in tatters. DAY 16 Six huge courthouses. She's taking off the dress. Meisel joins them. Sotto voce. And the defendant -. While you're at it let's get rid of number six. With the dreadlocks? That's crazy. Waves him over. We're not squeezing oranges here. Do I like bankers?
Heath catches Meisel's eye. She's my first choice. He's a defendant juror if I ever saw one. You're kidding. She's wrong. You do the explaining. He makes his own clothes. Your favorite? She's damaged goods.
There's something missing from her. In no hurry to get home. Somebody hurt her and she wants revenge. He may look like a brother-with- an-attitude to you. The defendant staring a hole into Kevin. DAY 18 Kevin leaving court. He likes it here. Here's the deal. Kevin enters looking beat. Seeing something that pleases him. Remnants of a room service dinner. The maids have started to give up. They've been living here for weeks now.
Milton joins the flow of people heading down into a subway station -. Except this man turns as Kevin passes. Grabs a cold french fry. She has her bad feeling. Watching him. Something's up. And now. I'm sorry. You can play it cool if you want.
My jury.. Those words written in stone on the wall. What the hell did they expect? The man is guilty as can be. Milton got pinned down in Indonesia a little longer than expected. We are going out.
A large central atrium. DAY 21 Milton. The decor is stark The receptionist is simply stunning. DAY 22 The firm offices. Offices rim this space. Wasn't a jury anywhere gonna let him off. Except one.
DAY 24 Heath is now far ahead. Interesting work. Assistants -. She turns. Completely spooked. Kevin rushing to catch up -- 25 INT. Central America. Milton spends a good deal of his time in the air. Sees us staring -. He's got you scheduled for fifteen minutes.
She is beautiful beyond propriety. DAY 25 Kevin about six steps into it when suddenly. In addition to our corporate clients. She will also turn out to be a brilliant EUC lawyer. I just love that. This is the home office. She's wearing a headset and arguing in machine-gun Italian. West Africa. Close to six hundred associates. She is a goddess.. Venetian blinds close tightly.. Thank you. Good luck.. DAY 26 First of all it's round. Kevin sucks it up.
Starts walking. Taking in the space. No paper anywhere. There are dramatic shafts of natural light from above. Kevin standing there. Behind you. No windows. Didn't mean to.
And large. Stark and clean to the extreme. Kevin turns. Up ahead. The walls are made of stone. A bridge between two skyscrapers.. Sixty stories above the world. The whole thing's been great. That's our secret. Five years in the Jacksonville D. I didn't plea out a lot. The Gettys case. What a number. We kill you with kindness. I hear you were brilliant. One day you're putting them away and the next you're setting them free?
It's been great. And we're fifty stories above the city. So you think your guy was guilty. The effect is staggering. Water right to the edge. I'm not sure the Florida Bar Association would appreciate it. Huge panel screens open out to: DAY 27 With that. Milton pushes a button. Straight through to the next room. I began the case with a clear conscience. DAY 28 A reflecting pool. Walk with me. There's a hole in the wall. A narrow walkway straight through the middle. What does your father do?
He passed away before I was born. She's got a church she really likes. I think she's up to eight-fifty an hour. Your mother. She's tough.
Some people can't handle it. What's she like? Just the two of us. My mom raised me. She's worked in the same poultry plant for as long as I can remember. Tell me about your family. Sooner or later it all flows through the streets. Suddenly they're quiet. It's the other thing I wonder about. You have the talent. Silenced by the view. The book? The church? I knew that before you got here. Early release for time served.
Some people fold. A Mercedes stretch pulls to the curb. Some excellent schools. High off Central Park. DAY 29 Carnegie Hall. Sinai Hospital right up the street. Changes everything. Some people. Can you summon your talent at will?
Can you deliver on deadline? Can you sleep at night? She is black. Milton bought the building. I'm Jackie Heath. The elevator doors open. One unique touch. DAY 31 Turn of the Century. Mary Ann steps out. We live across the hall. Two apartments per floor. Kevin and Mary Ann getting out of the car just as a group of uniformed school children come charging out of the building to meet their bus. DAY 33 French doors opening. Crown moldings. Opening the door.
DAY 32 A dream. A huge central hallway. And light. They stand there. Let you see it naked before you pick your palette. Twelve-foot ceilings. Kevin and Mary Ann walking through. You must've made quite an impression. Kevin walks out. Blown away. Mary Ann just behind him. Your colors. These apartments. Energy law. Let's go back to Gainesville. Forty people -. I run the Islamic sub-group. DAY 34 Incredible and extreme. Maritime Law. Kevin pulling her toward him. Mergers and acquisitions.
They've been going around the table introducing themselves to Kevin. Managing Director. She smiles first. You want to go home. Taking seats quickly. Intellectual property.
Christabella and another woman running in. I'm only getting behind this if you're on board. I'm with you. Christabella beside Kevin. You can keep scrounging for clients and pumping out the basement and I'll keep repossessing cars for Akamian. Primarily G-7 and E. The whole team. I'm trying to think how long it's been since we were all together.
All of us. Too long. I'm looking around, I know some of you came from very far away to be with us here today.
It's appreciated. A psychic centrifuge. Makes you want to reach out, doesn't it? All that good shit. That's what I'm looking for today. I feel drained. It drains me. I feel empty. I feel as though I've let you all down. A gesture.
I got it. It's perfect. It's intimate. It's quick. Doesn't cost a thing. There's a power to it. What is it? Every person at this table -- take the hand of the person on either side Very nice. Major windows. Stripped down at the moment, but there's a desk and phone. Never married. Two-pack-a- day habit.
Tough as dirt. Pam Garrety. She'll be your guide. PAM In the pipeline. For now, we'll just have you work pro hac vice. We've petitioned Florida for a letter of good conduct. I prepared, at Mr. Milton's request, an overview of the Moyez case. Deep ghetto side street. One of those blocks that have been completely lost. One whole side of the street has nothing but boarded-up row houses.
A storefront botanica. Insane colors. Rusted iron grates covering two tiny cataract windows. A steel door is open. Kevin walking from the car. Suit and tie. Turning, as he hears Her hair is white. I have a card. Phillipe Moyez. DAY 38 It's dark. Jars and bags and boxes are stacked on shelves everywhere. Kevin behind him. DAY 39 Darkness. I know what she's doin'! That's right!
Tell 'em take that noise back t'Africa 'fore I -- Stopping instantly because -. Kevin enters -- 38 INT. Now there is silence. I'm not sure who I spoke with. She holds a live chicken by its feet. A door opening above us. You get 'em! Go get 'em. The air thick with incense. Her skin is jet black. Oil lamps and candles for light. She moves aside. Dried herbs. Her eyes are pale blue. Kevin taking a very deep breath. A BOY -. I'm not sure I'm making myself clear here.
Mounds of bones. BOY Moyez. Beyond that. The walls painted a deep. Kevin hesitates. Crouching not to hit his head as he goes down into -- 42 INT. A naked bulb on the landing below. DAY 41 The Boy.? Where you think me taking you? No furniture. Speak wid him. DAY 42 Around the landing -. I thought I would recognize you. Sucks it up. In the dark? BOY laughing Where?
Where you think -. DAY 40 The Boy hits the lights. Think of it as spiritual currency. His eyes opaque and piercing at the same time. I'm going to need your help with this. A plastic bag of fresh green roots in his lap. We are much older.
This is not Santeria. I'm a lawyer. I need to ask you some questions. At your firm. We are not Voodoo. Is there a name? We have the tax exemption. His teeth black from chewing it. Skinny and intense. At once unassuming and terrifying. Starts slowly across the room. Before all of it. None of that. African cocaine. Let's start with that.. I'm here about the animals.
I'll get right into that. Moyez stands. Moyez stands aside.
You will have all the help I can give you. Bags of entrails. Assistant District Attorney Arnold Merto. That's very clear. Kevin backing away. Driving it into the tongue. A huge beef tongue sits on the bench. Moyez now with a hammer. The Boy already running up the stairs. For an instant. And the nail. La chemise noire. Jars of blood. The nails are scattered around it. DAY 44 Video monitor -. Pam there with him. And it's a loser. New York cops -.
PAM Isn't everything? DAY 48 with the remote control. PAM I'm sure the D. A long. Plea him out and suppress the tape. PAM What do you think? So what's the point? DAY 45 Hand-held footage of a police raid.
We're running -- through a building -. DAY 51 Bench trial. No jury. Now some people may find it bizarre. And he did it at home. She doesn't like the wallpaper. Pam sits with Moyez. PAM It's only a health code case. She's tearing it off. Eight days ago.
A rump roast slaps down onto a table. Other than that. Across the hall Pam is going home. Phillipe Moyez killed a goat. Men kill animals and eat their flesh. He killed a goat. MERTO at his seat. An associate wheels in a trolley with more books. That's a veal roast. And worst of all. Quietly at first. Moyez staring a hole in Merto. Merto's coughing getting worse as he tries to stop. And I'd like to move at this time for an immediate directed verdict for dismissal.
It's certainly not as common as the belief that wine is transformed into blood. It's not as common as. It's not even as common as the handling of poisonous snakes to prove one's faith.. He doesn't use electricity to kill. But Phillipe Moyez isn't two thousand miles away in a stockyard. Merto begins to cough.
Try that. What a scene. Merto can't speak -. Moyez and Pam leaving the courtroom.
Milton paying for Kevin's eggroll. Moyez shaking his hand and thanking him. All smiles. Tell me it isn't great. And they're walking. Armies that get so fucking far away from each other they need satellites to tell them who won. I don't see a whole lot of pro bono work in your immediate future. You gotta hear that on your own. That's instinct. They're corporate lawyers. They're doing needlepoint. Inside the cage. No pain.
Push button wars. It's gotta be in your blood. No smell. I bet I've got five thousand lawyers working around the planet. It's molecular. We're giving you away? He's paying us in goat's blood? I'm billing you out at four-hundred an hour. Push button battles. You can't help but smell your clients. They're busy reducing life and death to the proper position of a semi- colon. Can't be taught. No sound. One big. I'm a surprise. The cripple. Be the hick. Do I look like a master of the universe?
That's your only weakness as far as I can tell. That's what you're missing. I'm the whisper in Nefertitti's ear. The Florida stud thing. I'm the hand up Mona Lisa's skirt. They never see me coming. No matter how good you are. The nerd. Look at me -- I've been underestimated from day one. Milton escaping across the street.
The leper. That's the gaff. What I have? Don't let them see you coming. The shit- kicking surfer. It's me. But don't get too cocky. And see. From dirt. Where's the chicken? The chicken that plays tic-tac-toe. Why I came down? You want the truth? I'm an aging. You're in the part of the game I like best. I came up from nothing. I'm rambling because I'm excited. He never loses. Like you. You are a believer.
The realm of the True Believers. Back that way. Because I knew I was gonna like it. He used to be right here. Kevin taking the token. It's faith.? You can't believe a little bit.. Behind him. Still not enough furniture. Exactly like that. Stay in the trenches. Don't let that happen to you. Use them. Milton offering a token. So many of us have lost our faith. You're either in or out.
The apartment is starting to come together. Finishing her makeup for a night out. We were due up there fifteen minutes ago. Drops his pants. She blows him a kiss. Ducking back into bedroom. In the hallway -. Drops his briefcase. Going up. All what? Mary Ann up the hall in the bedroom door. Eddie's wife.
Some of them familiar from the conference room scene. Mary Ann's hand squeezing Kevin's just a bit more tightly as Diana leads them into the throng. Everyone can't wait to meet you. The crowd is very smart. Seventy-five guests and ten in staff.
Decorated and furnished to the max. The entire 'A' line -. Starting from scratch. These are normal people. I envy you. Milton has just arrived. I don't think so. Do you have your fabrics yet? Tell me you don't. Even as he says this. John Milton. And here you are. Mary Ann looking a little lost.
