Trivia

Hilary Brougher did not conceptualize the movie as "Lesbian Interest" and did not market it that way. It became 'typed' as such after gay fans approached her at festival circuits. See more »

a great noir!
27 January 2000 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I'd highly recommend this for noir fans--a great twist on the genre, with its additions of time-travel and backwards-to-forwards plotline and lesbianism. The first scene, naturally, makes you say, "How'd that happen?" and the rest of the story is how you saw what you saw in the first minute. Shows "12 Monkeys" what it could have been if it had had any guts at all.
