Good film, but perfect Scott Glenn!!
26 September 1999 | by Livia-2See all my reviews

The movie is OK: Bogdanovich knows how to direct a thriller, although his best work was "Noises Off...". Scott Glenn is perfect: nice, beautiful and very, very expressive: my favourite actor!!! Laura Leighton is pretty and nice.
