amazing film noir telefeature
17 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Although I saw Personals on TV, was surprised to find it was made for TV (except for the unknown actors). Acting, directing and plot were excellent in this film noir style modern thriller. After a number of interesting plot turns, it kept me on the edge of my chair, wondering how it will end. Wanted to see a bit more of the reporter's editor, and the ending could have been a little more original, but generally outstanding on all counts.
