Brian Dennehy....
28 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

we need more movies for TV directed by you; Since TV encompasses only certain subjects, we need a unique director, with actual talent and acting experience!.

While the subject matter of this film could be considered redundant (No more Kobe Bryant stories....please...); Dennehy manages to piece the film together from the victim's viewpoint as well; and this makes ALL the difference.

Alice Krige plays the victim, and this was based on a true story; I find these movies a more artful way to catch up on news; and at least the stories are fact-based. You also can avoid watching mindless newscasters like Tucker Carlson or other NBC "talking heads" with no talent, spewing the news headlines with their bought and paid-for bias. I digress, however; next time you are in the mood for true crime; try LMN or a Lifetime movie, instead of local (yawn) news.

Ms. Krige is excellent, not over the top; and a sympathetic character.In one scene, toward the end, Dennehy has an excellent scene, wherein he watches the tape of her saying "I was terrified...."; as he watches this over and over, he suddenly realizes that his perspective is COMPLETELY different from the woman's; you can read this in his face, and that is the sign of a real actor; they don't need props, costumes, or reality TV shows. They convey emotion through film.
