Inconsistent but powerful
30 November 1999 | by (Durham, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie concerned the life of a paranoid retiree who was formerly employed with the Defense Intelligence Agency who was convinced, with good reason, that there was a plot made on his life. This role is not quite the role in which Patrick Stewart shows his genius, but he gave a stimulating performance nonetheless. There were also a few scenes which were positively Hitchcockian in their broken suspense. There were certain scenes which were quite fragmented and did not keep a very good sense of forward motion and continuity. However this movie was a very interesting and rather well acted piece.
