Execution not quite up to inspiration.
7 June 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Early on in 'Equinox' I felt I might be watching 'Slaughterhose-Five's' Billy Pilgrim, "unstuck in time." The film followed two characters, both played by Matthew Modine. One was a meek soul who was continually being victimized by the rest of the world; the other was his polar opposite , a strong-arming gangster. These two threads finally came together with a third concerning a young woman writing a story suggested by a note found on the body of a homeless woman. Alan Rudolph wrote the script as well as directed. He is to be commended for trying something original here but I found his screenwriting not quite able to deliver his quirky vision satisfactorily. Still, I'd have to give the film a marginal recommendation on a straight yes-or-no vote.

'Equinox' is able to boast of a good cast besides Modine, including Laura Flynn Boyle, Fred Ward, Marisa Tomei, Tate Donovan, Lori Singer, Tyra Ferrell, Gailard Sartain, M. Emmett Walsh and Kevin J. O'Connor. I just felt like the execution was not up to the inspiration.

One esoteric note: the soundtrack prominently features eclectic Norwegian guitarist Terje Rypdal.
