This movie is non-sense. Why are there some chairs on the wall? Why all pregnant girls smoke and drink? Why does Laura sleep with Ben Jordan some days after having left with Steve (and when does it happen?) and after having known she's pregnant she comes back to the man that she believes has sent her a shotgun?
Good solid movie with twists and turns and lets fac eit Hauer really never lets you know if he really did it or not and be honest- some may think he did... watch it and see.... enjoyed it!
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.
A good older thriller based on Rutger's misleading talent. Good plot, some stupid behavior typical to a thriller. The relational factor is nicely blended in
with investigation and the mystery of the killer. Mostly good plotwise, standard acting and some supposed to be creepy stuff. Ok!
Decent little thriller that is mostly of note as Quentin Tarantino's first major film credit, as associate producer for rewriting much of the script. It's certainly not a "Tarantino" film. It feels more it's trying to be a Brian DePalma film. However, there are a few flourishes of Tarantino touches now and then, such as references to David Goodis or jokes characters tell that sound right out of his other films. Nothing special, but worth watching.
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.
I guess that I could've done worse. At least it's Giamatti and Hauer in it :)
