It is more than possible that KGB killed those three people.
Then it is likely they are laying a trap for me.
Three years ago I tried to arrest Major Pribluda. I proved he was an assassin. You remember those two bodies found by the river.

It has been a long time since I last viewed this film, but it was a welcome revisit, and a chance to see a great performance by William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman, A History of Violence, The Proposition). After about a dozen of his films, I never tire of watching him act.
The cast also included Lee Marvin in a very good performance, and the ever-lovable Brian Dennehy. This was also the American debut of Joanna Pacula, who got a Golden Globe nomination for her outstanding performance. And, we also got to see her golden globes in a skintastic moment, right before she gets Hurt! This was her finest film in a career spanning 30 years.
Do not miss this fine police procedural with a surprise ending. The motive is brilliant.
