A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER WITH GREAT DRAMATIC IMPACT
25 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to view this without commercial interruptions. The plot goes from a chillingly mysterious stalker to a woman's nervous breakdown. Finally, she gets appropriate treatment in hospital and gets skillful psychotherapy. The latter 40 minutes is the depicting of effective psychotherapy, probably the best portrayal I have seen coming from Hollywood. It shows how patients resist remembering traumatic experiences. It also shows how a patient, persistent and empathic therapist can make all the difference in the world.
