The interiors and sound stage set sequences for this New York set movie were filmed in Toronto instead of the Big Apple. The exteriors were still shot in New York with most of them being filmed in the city's Upper West Side. See more »

Great screenplay, acting and settings combine to make a dynamite film. The constant tension between the police investigation and Pacino's love interest keep the suspense going strong, and the chemistry between Barkin and Pacino is fabulous. John Goodman is excellent as always, the sex/death themes add to the tension, and the ending will throw most for a loop... this film delivers. Try it, you'll like it.
