Sexy and suspenseful.
30 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This story hooked me from the start. From the opening sequence of the slow reveal to the games and one-upping these two characters do throughout the film, I never knew who was fooling whom. The cinematography, acting, writing and directing were top-notch; it left me wanting more! It reminded me of a cross between BOUND, and CHOOSE ME with a little bit of Hitchcock for good measure. But make no mistake, this film is truly original. All the components nicely compliment each other without standing out to take away from the story from the costumes to the music to the production design. Can't wait for future films from this team!
