Did You Know?

Goofs

Dennis Burke grabs a newspaper and reads a headline, relevant to the plot, that indicates State Manhunt Widens. But if you pause the frame and read the text of the article below the headline, you see it is a bogus article about teenage curfew, totally unrelated to the headline. See more »

A pleasant surprise that fades at the finish
18 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Caught this on DVD. Watched it mainly because I like most of the cast members -- Coyote, the luscious Kinski and Faruzia Balk, and Jeremy Piven (from THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW). Assumed from the cover it was going to be one of those late night cable erotic thrillers (and the delicious nudity contained within the opening scene seemed to confirm that), but it turned out to be much more.

An interesting, twisty story, well shot and well directed, with across-the-board good performances from all involved. Even Pauly Shore (I suffered a chill of dread when he showed up late in the film) was okay. Coyote's dilemma escalates steadily throughout the film in a compelling fashion, so I was disappointed when the third act didn't pay things off in a way I found believable, or up to the level of the rest of the picture. Still, well worth giving a look. A real pleasant surprise.
