This is a very interesting film. What makes it even more interesting is that Clint Eastwood is the star. Sure Eastwood is in familiar territory. He plays a New Orleans cop hot on the trail of a serial killer. What makes this movie special is it's particular contradictions in the character played by Eastwood. On one hand he is a good single father to his his two daughters, and on the other hand he enjoys sleeping with prostitutes. He is charming when he is around his new love interest, a played by Genevieve Bujold, but he also says sleazy things to her. Additionally Eastwood is not the tower of tough that he normally is, instead he displays real emotion. Unfortunatly the plot in this movie goes down the predictable road. However, it keeps you guessing and Eastwood is fantastic. A must see for Eastwood fans and people who like strange movies alike.
