How are you feeling, by the way? You feel like you're getting back on your feet?
I guess if I felt solid anywhere it should be in this house. I've been in it one way or another my whole life. It was my great aunt's. But I don't know. It's just different now. Something's off. I used to walk in the middle of the night down to the corner market for a quart of milk.

Originally, the voice of Casanova was dubbed (though uncredited) by Jeff Kober. In later airings (notably satellite broadcasts), his voice was dubbed by Tony Goldwyn, who also plays Dr. Rudolph (The Gentleman Caller) in the movie. See more »
Detective Alex Cross is an experienced, astute forensic psychologist. He's brought in to aid in the investigation of a slippery criminal mastermind with a track record for abducting young women who are both beautiful and talented. The case becomes personal for Cross when one of the women abducted is his niece, and he enlists the aid of local doctor and former victim Kate McTiernan (Judd) who escaped from the same perpetrator and is the only living person who can identify him. Stylish, atmospheric, well-crafted thriller has a story that holds your interest, with some effective twists and strong performances from Freeman and Judd, but it all builds to a climax that doesn't quite payoff. Still, a respectable showing for all those involved. **½
