Neither director William Friedkin nor star David Caruso could redeem this vulgar, nasty script by Joe Eszterhas. Caruso is a politically ambitious assistant D.A. investigating the gruesome murder of a San Francisco bigwig. Too many clues point in the direction of his former girlfriend (Linda Fiorentino), a shrink who has a secret sideline as call girl to the rich and kinky. For good measure, she's now married to Caruso's best friend, Chazz Palminteri. Friedkin has done much better work in other places; even he can't perform much magic here, though he tries, with a solid car chase (that suffers in comparison to those he staged in French Connection and To Live and Die in L.A.). --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Yes, it maybe sordid but this movie is worth getting out for a rainy Saturday night. Friedkin plays with color in this movie extensively and the results are luscious. Read morePublished on June 16 2001 by Tim Walton

This film is supposedly an erotic thriller but it turns out to be only a mess. Linda Fiorentino lacks the presence and sex appeal of Sharon Stone or even Nicole Kidman. Read morePublished on Jan. 8 2001 by Gregg Hillier
