Script doctoring by Quentin Tarantino and a good cast, still can't push this one over the top, but if nothing else is on its worth a view.

An enormously underrated and overlooked film. The cast and performances are exceptional -- especially the luminous Natasha Richardson, Rutger Hauer at his finest, and featuring a mesmerizing debut by the "unknown" Paul Giamatti. Director Jan Eliasberg's visual style (mixing terrifying "home movie" footage with a rain-drenched blue, green, and gray neo-noir palette) is superb, elevating the film many levels above the well-done but predictable B movie script. And look at the power-house production team: D.P. Robert Yeoman (now Wes Anderson's constant collaborator), and Editor Christopher Rouse (Academy Award winner for the The Bourne Ultimatum). An overlooked gem -- not to be missed.

rumored to have actually been partially written and directed by Tarantino, which may be why I've been avoiding it
