Christa B. Allen,
Paul Matthews was the perfect candidate for military black ops...loyal, tough, no relatives, and the best marksman in the history of the military. A mission to Cajun country on the Louisiana coast coincides with his emotional unraveling.
Action thriller starring Gina Gershon as hard-edged, experienced cop Nora 'Hugs' Hugosian, who is assigned a new partner - rookie cop Chrids O'Brien (Rory Cochrane) - to help her with the serial killer case she is working on. The two begin a passionate affair - but it isn't long before Chris starts to have his suspicions about Nora's real involvement with the murders.Written by
I caught this film on HBO last night and started off thinking it was going to suck (like most B-Movie late night fare, uncut or not), but once Gina Gershon enters the picture (about 10 minutes in), the picture starts to really take off, building up a clever web of erotic tension and suspense that kept me glued to the screen, waiting to see what was going to happen next. The stereotypical ending--despite catching me off guard for some reason (maybe because it was 5 am or I couldn't believe they resorted to such a hackneyed gimmick, you decide)--is a bit of a letdown, but don't let that stop you from watching what turned out to be a surprisingly good erotic thriller (despite having extremely minimal nudity, none of it Ms. Gershon's, which I thought odd considering her role certainly warranted it). I give it a 7 out of 10 (it would have warranted an 8 if not for the ending). Worth a rental or purchase (or staying up well past your bedtime in my case). If you like cop films and/or erotic thrillers, this is a pleasant surprise that you should make the effort to track down. I don't know why the director, Yuri Zeltser, has not made more films; he certainly shows a lot of talent. Congratulations to Ms. Gershon for a wonderful "bad girl" performance!
