Quotes

Mickey Davis: [Mickey's voice as Scott Muller reads from Mickey's Diary] There are two me's really, Mickey and Michelle. Mickey is this mousy little house frau... Who hasn't taken a real chance in her whole life. Michelle, on the other hand, is up for anything. The only trouble with Michelle is that she lives and breathes only on these pages.

Disturbing concept
20 August 1999 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Though I do like this film, I found the concept immensely disturbing. Being a private person (you don't see my NAME on this, do you?), I found the idea that anyone could so completely invade a life absolutely terrifying. In spite of a few holes, the film works, chiefly because the characters enmesh the audience in their feelings. Steven Bauer is incredibly underrated as an actor and, while I have seen stronger performances from him, he's very good as the enamoured thief in search of a way out and Barbara Williams is credible as the neglected wife enchanted by the mystery man. Let's not leave out John Getz, another unexplainably underrated performer, as the self-absorbed husband. If you can ignore the flashy 80s style, the film is a fascinating study of obsession. Warning: it definitely deserves its R rating for unnecessary full nudity.
