Tightly made and interesting film
11 July 2000 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

This is a very well-made film marked by solid direction and acting. The script is linear, suspenseful and leisurely enough to permit character development. Although James McCaffrey seems rather wan as someone to be desired, performances by John Glover (excellent as usual) and Polly Draper more than make up for him. The scoring was effective and the blocking unobtrusive. Newport Beach was perfectly cast. The ending was more layered than is immediately obvious. Although this effort is underrated and largely forgotten, an opportunity to purchase it will be rewarding.
