Did You Know?

Goofs

Dennis Burke grabs a newspaper and reads a headline, relevant to the plot, that indicates State Manhunt Widens. But if you pause the frame and read the text of the article below the headline, you see it is a bogus article about teenage curfew, totally unrelated to the headline. See more »

solid fun
21 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK,I make alot comments about Kinski movies,but everyone has their favorite artists. This movie is just fun from start to finish. And it does keep you on the edge of your seat. There doesn't seem to be a wasted moment in this movie; every scene is there for a reason. Just good film making and good acting all around. I think the title would make more sense if the prof's book had been explained in greater detail.
