Paced, musing NY city mystery
28 March 2000 | by Palimpsest-3See all my reviews

This NY city piece starts sneakily with its characters but eventually unfolds in the first 40 minutes with both the characters and the basis of the plot. Once the characters and plot are established it turns into a quasi mystery who-dunnit. Nice to watch but not so intriguing and edgy as typical thriller movies with the who-dunnit theme. The sub plot of the media exciting the serial-killer story is a very good study. That, alone, is worth the time.
