    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    A moody, effective thriller for about 80 percent of the way, and then our hands close on air. If you walk out before the ending, you'll think it's better than it is. show more

    Has the integrity of good dialogue and enough of a writer's preserved craftiness to make it a worthwhile date-night attraction. show more
