Great modern-day film noir!
4 December 2001 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this movie!--enough to purchase the video. I've seen Vertigo, Psycho & North By Northwest many times, & I fail to see any stealing of scenes or plagiarism. I do agree with the Hitchcockian nature of it, as there are many suspenseful plot twists & turns, & the end is definitely like some of Hitchcock's endings -- you're not quite sure what to think or who to believe. JoBeth Williams & Virginia Madsen are terrific [as they both usually are]--convincing & believable. If you like modern- day film noir, as I do, this movie is for you.
