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

Pretty good sexy thriller
9 March 2000 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie knowing it could have been real bad or real good ... and I tend to lean towards the "real good" side right now ... so it's thumbs up.. but no waaaaay up !! ....

It's not the greatest erotic thriller in the world of course but what you have here is a twisted tale of murder, sex, jealousy ... that is rather effective ... in part !!

I liked it also how the movie keeps you guessing the whole time wondering who is the real killer ... all the main characters could have been the one... although I guessed who it REALLY was at the halfway point myself ... oops ! .. Well, I had doubts later if I had made the right "prediction" ... so this one is better than the usual sexploitation film noir of the month...

I was reminded of Basic instinct (1991 ?) and Bound (1996) (among others !) while watching this one and even though "Listen" is not at the level of those other 2 movies it is still a fairly enjoyable one ... my guess is you'll like it if you pay attention to all the little details and enjoy a few twists and turns along the way ...

Wild things (1998) also appears to have been an "influence" here ... 3.5/5 for "Listen" ... ;o)
