    Masterpiece!!

    Following in the realm of 'Body Heat' this movie is a flat out masterpiece....A very well shot movie which captures mid 1980's Beverly Hills better than any other movie..Very erotic and suspenseful thriller...Gregg Henry is brilliant along with star Craig Wasson..Melanie Griffith and Dennis Franz also have memorable turns in this De palma cult classic

    DECENT SUSPENSE, GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY

    There are 2 sequences that makes this DePalma formula effort worth seeing: The through the maze run at the Rodeo Drive mall and Melaine Griffith's porn actress ''do and won't do'' rift to Craig Wasson. The scenery is stunning and performances by Dennis Franz, Gregg Henry and the leads are worth the 90 plus minutes. Where's the beautiful Nancy Allen?
