I caught this on late-night cable, and I was familiar with Richard Eden from Santa Barbara so I watched it. Fortunately, it was right at the beginning, because it would've been hard to pick up in the middle. Anyway, this turned out to be a tense, taut suspenser from beginning to end. The suicidal hero and the gangsta's woman (who's trying to get out of the life) are pursued through the labyrinth of a run-down Hollywood residence hotel. The assortment of characters they meet as they run from the storm of gunfire add layering to the story. My only quibble is with the end--we don't really get the emotional payoff we expect, although one could say the actual ending is more realistic. Regardless, this is well worth a look.
