A somewhat "arty" kidnapping film, directed in a cold, detached style that doesn't get us very involved, and also shows little compassion for the poor victim (although Pamela Franklin's expressionless performance is also to blame for that). However, Brando and Boone are very good (despite having to play characters that are NOT well-developed) and there is an ambiguous, interesting ending. (**1/2)
