Quotes

Joey Callaghan: So, you know I'm thinking you're from another country, you know I'm hearing an accent. Am I right maybe? How would Sherlock Holmes do this? Alright, number one, I figure you're on the run. Number two, like Ralph said, those two guys that were following you, they're like foreigners. Number three, you don't talk alot, right, which means maybe, ah, you're trying not to give yourself away, right? Which means four, you got something to hide. Which leads me to five, that wherever you're from, you're ...

Worth watching, if only for Belinda Bauer

Clever, vastly underrated little ABC Circle Films production starring James Spader,(pre-Stargate; sex,lies, and videotape)Belinda Bauer in a totally believable performance,(compare to Jeff Bridges in the more highly-acclaimed "Starman")and even a young Clark Johnson (Homicide: Life on the Street.)

Special effects were low-budget but the direction,cinematography, and Gil Melle's beautiful score make this one a keeper and a film to watch over and over. Lifetime has shown this movie occasionally (though why it's always edited for length and content, I'll never know)but, other than that, I've never seen a repeat. Find it if you can; to my knowledge, it's never been released on DVD but there is a VHS version floating around Europe somewhere. Hope its not PAL.
