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 »

Alone at last!
You must be somebody who's always on the lookout for a new way to fuck up.
Why is it that you always find me so objectionable?
Other than the fact that you're a drug addict and the only patients you treat are criminals?
You mean your associates? I'm not a drug addict. I take drugs to feel normal, to get level. I regulate my intake very precisely.
I'm sorry, that's right, you're a highly trained professional. You should know.
No, you were actually right the first time- I'm just ...

This film started off seeming a little bit tv-ish but turned out as a very watchable and slightly tongue-in-cheek thrill-ride. David Duchovny is very watchable and provides multiple sides of his lead character, a geeky surgeon, a down-and-out druggy, a hard-balled hero and a hopeless Romeo. Fighting for the love of Angelina Jolie as the sexy and good-natured mistress of Tim Hutton. Hutton has loads-a-fun as the hip and ultra-slick Mob boss, very almost unconvincingly evil, but not quite. Peter Stormare is underused and loud roles with screaming obscenities certainly aren't his scene, roles such as the one in "Fargo" suit his style alot better. The narration is well-used and Duchovny's voice is interesting as he explains his past, feelings, opinions. But unfortunately there's a point where his slightly mono-style voice gets a little too much. Still, he proves a solid lead and leads the film into a successful finale, ending a worth-while and overlooked Thriller from 1997.
