David Duchovny plays a doctor asked by a criminal to help his friend. Duchovny says "He's dead." Pointing a gun at Duchovny, the criminal says, "Well, fix him!" Duchovny responds, "I'll see what I can do." Twenty years earlier, in A Bridge Too Far (1977), James Caan plays a soldier who takes a wounded comrade to a field doctor. After the doctor tells him his friend is dead, Caan points a gun at the doctor and insists that he look at his friend. The doctor replies, "I can give him a quick examination if you like." See more »

A pleasure to see a film so different from the rest.
Perhaps one of the biggest shadows to ever get out of, TV. Upon hearing that an actor is moving from the small to the big screen, immediately the average fan judges said actor poorly, usually for the sole reason that they feel he is betraying his medium. David Duchovny was unfortunately, no exception.
His portrayal of Eugene, a doctor who loses his license for losing a patient while under the influence of a controlled substance is excellent. Drawn into a world that his education never prepared him for, he feels himself wanting to leave it on the surface, but intrigued by it in a way he'd rather not admit.
Timothy Hutton, continues to show us that his Oscar in 1980 is still very well deserved. As Raymond Blossom, the underworld czar with his fingers in just about everything from bootlegged CDs to murder, he befriends Eugene through a incident that is as well thought out as it is acted.
Angelina Jolie rounds out the cast as Raymond's girlfriend who has as her own agenda as much as Raymind and Eugene do.
