A chilling story of a man, his brother's broken back and Kim Cattrall..
26 August 1999 | by (pgh) – See all my reviews

What an epic movie this was...as a youth i was very interested in the central theme in this film, that of social disobedience. What do you do when your brother breaks his back while saving a young child from a burning building, and the state refuses to pay for his hospitalization..If you're Timothy Hutton there is only one answer..take up with Kim Cattrall and cover the town with grafitti. And not just any grafitti...Grafitti which scandalizes the mayor. The ending is as thrilling as it gets, which along with a Paul Sorvino Cameo and the generous usage of a stunning motorcycle with side car brought this reviewer to his knees...A must for motorcycle with sidecar enthusiasts and Spencer For Hire afficianados...
