A tough female district attorney is investigating a man who picks out women from public places by posing as a famous photographer, then takes pictures of them, then pushes on their submissive tendencies and takes advantage of them physically and financially. The trouble is that none of these women want to press charges, because they feel fulfilled in some way by their encounter. The DA arranges to meet him and finds herself in a similar situation as the other victims, and has to come to grips with her own submissive desires. Written by

This review is for the UNRATED version. The R-rated version would merit a *1/2 out of 4 rating.
Slick thriller about a female district attorney (Sean Young) who uses herself as bait to lure in a con man (Patrick Bergen) who seduces woman and then forces them to do inexplicable acts. Intelligent, extremely thought provoking with a perfect performance from Sean Young. Most people call her turn wooden, because most people have only seen the awful R-rated version which edits out some important scenes. Here, her aloofness works because the con man has traumatized her and forced her into a little girl state of mind. Young's turn is complex and underrated. Her tall body and ballerina build only make her performance all the more convincing. Patrick Bergen is also very good. Sure he may not be very handsome, but the women he picks up are plain looking everyday women that could easily fall into his trap. His smooth dialogue and mannerisms make this turn work.
Film also goes where most other films would not dare to go to. There is on screen fetish scenes (involving spankings and horses), full frontal nudity, and graphic sexual situations. All of this plays key parts to the story and move the action along. None of these scenes are done for just the thrill of it. The only thing that hurts the film is the rushed ending. It just doesn't cut it. For such a smart thriller one can only naturally feel extremely disappointed. The story is progressing and then boom the ending just comes out of nowhere. Still this is a noteworthy film worth watching.
Unrated; Graphic Nudity and Sexual Situations, Strong Adult Themes, Violence and Profanity.
