Trivia

Due to interiors being shot in Toronto and exteriors being filmed in New York, much attention to detail needed to be made for continuity to make sure that portions of shots relating to the same sequences actually matched. See more »

A fine thriller, and a great movie with great acting.
5 August 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one great movie, not only a thriller which it is also. Sometimes a movie will come out so that watching it will be like reading a good book. This is one of few. Excellent script, great acting and directing and photo – and the additional point in introducing Barkin's character far into the film makes for a much more convincing narrative. Both Pacina and Barkin have always been great actors, and here they are at their best, perhaps because of a certain tension between them – one cannot decide if they are friends personally or hate each other, or perhaps they create the ambivalence just because they are superb actors. Anyway, I don't know if this one got any major awards, but it sure should have. Besides Barkin is one hell of a woman, and I supposed that Pacino is one hell of a man.
