An engrossing thriller - and one sparkling with intelligence, with the surprising twists grounded in credible human behaviour.

It's a morality play, really, but dripping with humid sex and violence.

The movie's own payoff is compelling enough, but the project has a weightless feel that limits involvement. Better you give it an hour-and-a-half on video someday, surrounded by wine and snacks.

Rafelson is so true to his sour vision of crime, deception and a rottenness at the core of our natures -- he's as cheerful as a Jim Thompson potboiler -- that we never get a chance to like or care about his characters.

Nicholson is good, but the movie isn't.
