Storyline

Sarah, a San Francisco accountant, moves into a new apartment building to be near her new boyfriend Jake, a writer with a case of writers block. When Jake has trouble with intimacy with Sarah, she escapes by eavesdropping on others people's phone lines and soon suspects that a man's voice on a phone sex line is a serial killer that is killing prostitutes all over the city on a nightly basis. Sarah then enlists the help of her girlfriend/ex-lover, Krista, to find the killer's identity before the killer finds them. Written by Matt Patay

A guilty pleasure?
13 August 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Why should I feel a little guilty for liking 'Listen' so much? Because it has telephone voyeurism, lots of sex and an obsessive lesbian? Those things work to its advantage. This movie has all the stuff that a fan of the late-night cable channel thrillers goes for, including a complicated plot and a finger pointed at everybody.

Brooke Langton and Sarah G. Buxton are likable (and watchable) in this movie, at least in my book. Veteran Andy Romano adds some seasoning as one of the police detectives (there's always police detectives in these flicks, right?) and some of the younger actors like Gordon Currie, Joel Wyner and Evan Taylor do good jobs also.
