Comic leading man Hugh Grant gets serious in this drama about a physician who uncovers a truly disturbing secret. Guy Luthan (Hugh Grant), a British doctor serving a residence in a hospital in New York City, is very puzzled by a patient brought to the emergency room one night. Naked, disoriented, and bearing a hospital bracelet and a fresh surgical scar, the mystery man is suffering from a baffling variety of symptoms, and though he dies not long after he's admitted, Luthan can't get the patient

It's a fish out of water story in which neither the fish nor anybody else seems aware of his 'out of water' status.
The good liberal Michael Apted seems to think he's directing a film about society's exploitation of the homeless. In fact, the exploitation is all his.
If it's never as scary or provocative as it means to be, at least it's straightforward and satisfying.
A spine-tingling suspense machine that holds you captivated from beginning to end. A much underrated, overlooked thriller.
Extreme silliness, but kind of fun.
Tries to be a both a medical thriller and morality play, and it doesn't quite deliver in both departments.
A thoughtful if somewhat heavy-handed medical thriller that benefits enormously from Hackman's involvement.
Opens our eyes to some serious moral issues involving advances in medical science.
Hackman and Grant make a surprisingly watchable pair, but there's yawns to be found.
