What appears to be very tacky and un-original, surprises audiences with it's twists and turns, drama and horror, and slight comic edge to be one of the 80's best thrillers.
This film is very compelling and captivating, as it's story is simple, making it easy to follow. An alcoholic, chakra-cleansing former high profile actress wakes up next to a dead man. Did she do it? Was she framed? Is this your typical thriller? No. What makes this picture so energetic and fresh is it's contemporary screenplay which makes you question every character you lay eyes on. The dialogue however is very dull, and could be a little more creative if the screenwriter maybe put a little more time into writing.
Jane Fonda gives a truly remarkable pre-hiatus performance which in turn makes Rual Julia and Jeff Bridges look good on-screen.
The film score is one of the worst i've heard in over ten years. It does nothing to heighten the suspense in the film, but dulls it and makes it look pretentious.
This film is inventive and original, yet fails to make the most of a superb story.
