Avant garde music is the highlight
5 June 2000 | by moviescoreSee all my reviews

A peculiar, however stylish thriller with highly unlikely story and poor acting. The highlight of this film is actually the original score by Don Davis, today best known for his postmodern, avant-garde score for The Matrix. Film music buffs should hunt down this film and close their eyes for a very original musical experience.
