Figgis relies on Quaid's performance to convey the perilous dynamics of his character's threatened masculinity, and the performance produced by this trust is solid gold.

Stephen Dorff is suitably intimidating as the film's scoundrel... "Hand that Rocks the Cradle" meets "Fatal Attraction"

The movie ultimately belongs to Mr. Dorff, whose villain is as frightening as any human reptile to have slithered onto the screen in quite some time.

Writer Richard Jefferies' solid script emphasizes character and psychology over plot and provides Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone with engaging, multidimensional starring roles.

Director Mike Figgis also composed the score, which during the tense scenes merely sounds like a two-year-old incessantly banging on random piano keys.
