A thoroughly gratifying prestige thriller, thanks to riveting suspense and two brilliant stars.

Where the movie really stumbles is with co-writer/director Philip Kaufman's attempts to make it a conventional mystery-thriller. Kaufman simply doesn't have the slightest notion of how to make a conventional film of any kind.
