Review

Although Linda Fiorentino creates almost a parody of a femme fatale and Peter Berg looks so everyday that watching him getting seduced is a little too close for comfort, this erotic thriller by John Dahl (Red Rock West, Rounders) has a sense of realism and intelligence to it that elevates it above the cut in this genre. The cat-and-mouse-game in here is not about physical chases and close calls, but about assumed identities, hiding out in plain sight in small towns, and communicating via word games. The picture is clever, stylish and plays by its own rules, although whatever impression it makes is likely to be fleeting and you probably won't care much for any of the characters.
