Stowe's talent wasted
7 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Caught this on late night TV recently, and only watched because I admired Stowe's work in "Playing by Hearts." The constant use of lighting to make everyone's eyes look luminescent, apparently intended to add to the film noir mood, just made you wonder if there was some kind of "aliens are among us" subplot coming up, and disguised Stowe so thoroughly that she was virtually unrecognizable through whole sections of the film. Others have commented on the plot holes, and there are many, not the least of which occur in the climactic scene, where some fine work by Stowe is ruined by the extreme unlikelihood that things could have gone down that way.
