The main problem with Jesse Baget's 'Breathless' is that it takes itself too seriously thinking that it's slicker, cleverer and funnier than it actually is. The weak script is perforated with holes. The dialogues try to be clever and funny but they hardly impress. A movie like this really needs to sustain its tension and element of suspense but every breath that 'Breathless' takes is predictable. Moreover, the pacing drags especially the dialogue ridden scenes that after a point sounds like mumbo jumbo. Of the performances, Gina Gershon does a fine job. Kelli Giddish performs adequately. Val Kilmer is funny in a brief role. Ray Liotta is far from his best. Production value looks quite good. All in all, 'Breathless' is lacks the life to sustain the viewer's attention. For a dark comedy, its just not that funny.
