    Walking in, I thought I knew what to expect, but i didn't anticipate how William Friedkin would jolt me with the immediate urgency of the action. This is not an arm's-length chase picture, but a close physical duel between its two main characters. show more

    Isn't exactly fraught with psychological depth and nuance, but as a stalker-stalkee suspenser, the pic has some nice things going for it. show more

    Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal

    Aspiring to pure action -- several very long passages are wordless -- the movie ends up teetering on the brink of self-parody.
