Trivia

The script originally called for full male frontal nudity, but William Baldwin changed his mind after the scenes had been shot. See more »

Goofs

In the dinner party scene, Jack Landsford, played by Tom Berenger, arrives at the party with slightly shorter hair than when he leaves. When he enters, his hair is trimmed tighter to his head, while when he leaves, his hair is definitely a tad longer on the sides, back, and bangs, enough to notice that this much hair would not grow in a matter of hours. This scene likely had a re-shoot. See more »

A surprisingly good movie...
1 September 2011 | by sdiegotwSee all my reviews

I waited 18 years to see this movie because I had always heard how terrible it is. When it first came out, I seem to recall thinking it highly implausible that someone could have the kind of video and audio equipment you see in this movie. But the equipment and its use in the film is entirely plausible, even in 1993.

I found no problems with the plot. It's an interesting thriller with something that's hard to find--a unique story that hasn't been told a thousand times already. The acting is good. The characters and their actions are completely believable. I was never left thinking that a real person might not have done the things that the people in the movie did.

Having seen the movie, I really don't understand why so many people criticize it so harshly. In terms of telling a compelling, entertaining story, I would say it is far better than movies like Hereafter and on par with a movie like the Adjustment Bureau (just two recent movies I could think to compare it to).

If you haven't seen it, give it a chance.
