Mysterious Radio DJ
14 May 2007 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

This film opens up with great helicopter photography flying over New York City and over the Brooklyn Bridge and close ups of the former Twin Towers along with fantastic jazz music. James Wilder, (Harry) is an outstanding saxophone jazz player who is married to Jennifer Beals,(Julia) who are having a problem with their marriage because Harry had an affair and Julia does not trust him any longer. There is a Radio DJ called the Night Owl who has a very sexy voice and seems to drive all her male listeners up the walls. A piano player in Harry's band listens to this Night Owl and all of a sudden he jumps to his death because this voice in his head drove him completely crazy. This film is rather way out and I do not recommend viewing it.
