A journalist (Anna) receives an obscene phonecall that she mistakes for her boyfriend. She then agrees to meet with the caller at a bar, but instead of meeting the boyfriend, she witnesses a murder. Written by
Reasonably entertaining thriller, which maintains an intriguingly ambiguous atmosphere for at least its first hour, when you don't know who might turn out to be a villain and how the two parallel plotlines are going to merge. The director also makes good use of the N.Y locations, but the story is filled with too many coincidences and improbabilities. An early showcase for the talent of Steve Buscemi. (**1/2)
