Equinox & Trouble in Mind
30 May 2008 | by peterjstanleySee all my reviews

This and Rudolph's "Trouble in Mind" seem, to me, to be companion pieces. They both take place in a future that serves to create a mood around the characters rather than spectacle for the audience. They seem to be almost completely forgotten with no DVDs on the cards, and that is a shame since they are both terrific.

Equinox contains great work from Matthew Modine, Lara Flynn Boyle and Kevin J. O'Connor in particular, but this is a quality production from top to bottom. The twin storyline threatens to drag this into the trash but the script dodges a lot of the tiresome clichés that you would expect from reading the synopsis or tag line.

Please ignore the poor rating and bad reviews on IMDb. This one has been severely overlooked.
