Is Dr. Gottlieb a helping professional or is he a counter-intelligence agent sent to debrief Halsey?

Did You Know?


During Jason's flashback of his arrival at the hospital after a car crash, a loudspeaker is heard calling "Dr. Stahl and Dr. Gee to psychiatrics". This is almost certainly a reference to Eric Steven Stahl and Gerald Laurence (a.k.a. G-man), the movie's writers. See more »

This movie is near perfect and a classic in my books.
14 April 2002 | by offvaderSee all my reviews

Uhh...my summary should suffice...but for those of you that need more...this movie is well written and directed...the acting is excellent...it was one of the first fully digitally mastered movies so they went a little heavy on sound effects but it's still cool...it's witty...intelligent(unlike some of the people that left negative reviews of this movie)...the suspense and mystery builds wickedly right up to the end...best of all it is quite original(a rare treat)...and well you just have to see it for yourself.
