Doctor Sam Rice:
Now listen to me! On account of you, I'm an accessory to something. I don't know what! I'm withholding evidence. I'm obstructing justice. I'm gonna get my license revoked if I'm not thrown into jail first. And on top of that, I've just spent fifteen thousand dollars for a painting I don't even like!

Everything going for it except for one thing: the script
I saw STILL OF THE NIGHT for the first since I saw it 20 years ago at the movies. Everything about it is top notch except for one thing: the script. There's really no story. It's one of the flimsiest stories I've ever seen for such a high caliber production. It's a shame because everything is so great: great cast (I couldn't keep my eyes off of Streep), great cinematography, some excellent direction here and there (the dream sequence is memorable). I just wished they wrote a great script to go along the other great aspects of the production.
But after watching it, I realized that we don't really see movies like STILL OF THE NIGHT anymore. They just don't make these kind of classy thrillers these days and watching SOTN sorta made me missed them. A lot!
