Christopher Reeve's best performance
11 March 2004 | by marcosaguadoSee all my reviews

What a strange and mesmerizing film. A sense of dread takes over from the opening scene and never lets go. The performances are top notch. Christopher Reeve, never one of my favorites, took me completely by surprise. He's never been as complex or bold, he plays the ambiguity of his character with a panache worthy of James Mason. Marg Helgenberger is heart breaking. The director uses visual devices to create the uneasiness of the story making the experience utterly unnerving. Cec Verrel, Fiounula Flannagan, Conor O'Farrel and Jim Jarrett give also, original, entertaining, powerful performances. It is unusual to find something so stylish on television.
